Nothing About Us Without Us: Indigenous Jurisdiction Over Mining and Marine Territories

Marine and mining development activities are occurring on Indigenous territories, and it is imperative that Indigenous peoples assert their jurisdiction over their lands by being involved in the creation of legislation and industry standards, and the management and jurisdiction of resource-rich lands and ocean spaces.

This two-day program will assemble world leaders in mining and marine development and Indigenous law, to provide delegates with in-depth information and practical insights to understand what’s next in this growing field. For those who wish to remain current and informed, this program should not be missed.
