Safeguarding The Environment In Mining Development Projects

Written By: Dr. Eugene H. Shannon

Safeguarding the Environment in Mining Development gives a description of the role the extractive industry plays in the economic sector of most developing countries. It also describes the activities of Transnational Corporations (TNCs) in this sector. Topics explored include the impacts on the economy, employment generation, technology transfer and environmental damages as a result of poor mitigation measures to address externalities as a result of improper effluent disposal.

This Manuel (Book) further indicates that TNCs must come to realize that environmental regulations should not only become a payment part of the business climate of industrialized countries, but must also be a part of the developing countries and that in the long run cooperation is more productive than opposition.

Dr. Eugene H. Shannon

The Author, a Professor of Geological and Environmental Sciences, also emphasizes that cooperative or bilateral efforts by both TNCs and governments of developing countries are absolutely necessary for the effectiveness of safeguarding the environment.
