The International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM), in cooperation with UNEP and the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), prepares until the end of 2019 a global tailings standard which it wishes to consult in its draft form with relevant stakeholders from different subregions, including representatives from communities, NGOs, authorities and operators in Central Asia, to ensure its broad acceptance. At the suggestion of UNEP, the secretariat to the UNECE Convention on the Transboundary Effects of Industrial Accidents has joined forces with the Global Tailings Review to organize the subregional consultation for Central Asia on 18 (pm) and 19 November 2019. The consultation precedes the UNECE subregional workshop on mine tailings safety for Central Asia which will be held in Almaty on 20-21 November 2019.
