FOREST-SMART MINING: Identifying Factors Associated with the Impacts of Large-Scale Mining on Forests
This report explores what forest-smart mining might look like and the extent to which examples already exist on the ground. It focuses on large-scale mining (LSM) for the minerals of highest economic value (with the exception of coal). It also focuses on a range of LSM projects occurring in forests across a variety of geographies, ecologies, and economies, analyzing for each the condition of the forest around the mine site and the potential factors associated with better or worse forest outcomes.
