The Climate-Smart Mining Flagship for the World

As the world focusses on decarbonization, Indonesia must increase the resilience of its minerals-based value chains, creating pathways that will be responsive to changing climate conditions.  If managed sustainably and responsibly, some of the benefits that could potentially accrue to resource-rich countries emerging from the decarbonization of minerals-based supply chains include the following: (i) net direct economic benefits (such as taxes and royalties); (ii) net indirect economic benefits (for example shared infrastructure development catalyzed through mine investments); (iii) climate change benefits; and (iv) community development benefits.
