The meeting brought together government ministers, heads of public institutions, private sector actors in the minerals sector and members of civil society. It was jointly organized by the African Minerals Development Centre (AMDC), hosted in Addis Ababa by the UN Economic Commission for Africa; the German Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR) based in Hannover; and the Accrabased African Center for Economic Transformation (ACET).
The workshop began with a technical meeting on 1 November that set the context of opportunities and challenges in Ghana’s mineral sector, the guiding vision for minerals development at the continental and national level and the regional and local potential for boosting procurement and value addition along a thriving value chain. On 2 November, the NSDP was formally launched, with a keynote address by Ghana’s Vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia and four plenary sessions in which panels discussed challenges involving policies, institutions, industry and skills, and made recommendations to move the NSDP forward.
