Today I presented talks to a varied selection of professionals from different fields, all employed by or associated with the Contraloria General de la Republica, in Bogota, Colombia.
The topic was mining environmental management, and specifically issues in connection with monitoring and inspection. I could base most of my talks on the information gained during the EU-funded "National EIA & SEA Project" in Ghana, that I had the pleasure to lead from 2005 to 2008. Nice to revisit some of those experiences again. And fantastic to have an attentive, interested and even sometimes critical audience!
Looking forward to various discussions during the week to come, including visits to some mine sites in the vicinity of Bogota.
