The FORAM pilot event on raw materials governance marks an important deliverable and milestone of the EU-funded project that is developing a platform of international experts and stakeholders that will help to formulate recommendations on how to improve international cooperation on raw materials and investments worldwide. FORAM stands for “World Forum on Raw Materials” and will result in recommendations for either setting up a new initiative or for improving existing initiatives. The objective of FORAM is to improve international resource transparency and governance for a better stability, predictability and resource-efficiency, which lead to better conditions for competitiveness on a sustainable basis.
To achieve this goal, the project has first reviewed the activities of existing national and international initiatives, programmes and policy documents and set up a Stakeholder Network composed of experts from relevant organizations, coming from G20 and other countries active in the non-energy raw materials sector materials. These stakeholders are being engaged in a structured dialogue in order to share experiences, explore partnerships and together search for ways and means for better cooperation.
The FORAM 18 pilot event will be a crucial step in this stakeholder process. Its main purpose is to deepen the insights from the dialogue by means of face-to-face discussions, build connections between people and create or strengthen ownership for improving global cooperation. The event will be an excellent opportunity for networking, for information exchange and for reaching out to the media and the public about the sense of urgency for the issues at stake.
