TI Canada published two comprehensive research reports – one on the corruption risks in the process of decommissioning mines, and one on the environmental impact assessment process in the three mining-rich provinces of Ontario, British Colombia and the Yukon Territory, including research with Indigenous peoples. 


TI Australia consulted with over 26 civil society, government and industry organisations to raise awareness of corruption risks in mining approval processes in Queensland and Western Australia. 

The Chapter:

trained the Western Australian Corruption and Crime Commission on the Mining Awards Corruption Risk Assessment Tool;

worked with the Queensland Department of Environment and Science to increase the transparency and accountability of the environmental and social impact assessment process;

worked with the Western Australian Department of Mines, Industry, Regulation and Safety to strengthen due diligence.

worked with the Department of Environment and Science in Queensland to increase the transparency and accountability of the environmental and social impact assessment process for mining projects in the state.


TI Mongolia was one of three civil society organisations in a working group that drafted the new Extractives Industry Transparency Law. The Chapter strengthened beneficial ownership and integrity due diligence in Mongolia’s licensing processes.

Sierra Leone

Thanks to TI Sierra Leone’s advocacy, the National Minerals Agency included the duration of the mining licenses application at every stage of the application process in its publicly accessible Service Charter Billboard. This has helped mitigate the risk of companies using facilitation payments to fast-track mining license decisions.


TI-Zambia regularly engaged with the Zambia Environmental Management Agency (ZEMA) to get their support for the simplification of Environmental Impact Assessment reports for local communities.


In Madagascar, the Chapter was active in the EITI multi-stakeholder group, and was the national coordinator for Publish What You Pay Madagascar. The Chapter worked to strengthen the public anti-corruption agency’s corruption risk assessment tool based on insights from their research into the mining sector.


TI Zimbabwe was a key player in the emerging local stakeholder network on the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative. Together with other civil society organisations, such as the Zimbabwe Environmental Law Association, they became a reference point for EITI discussions.
