Map of Potentially Exploitable Resources

  • Health and safety
  • Land-use planning
  • Permitting processes / policy integration
  • Reporting official statistics
  • Socio-economic and environmental impact assessments

Challenge the practice is addressing: To inform authorities of which geological resources are avaiilable in their territory by defining the varieties of exploitable resources and their locations.

Concrete practice to achieve the expected goal: The first step is to involve regional authorities in the idea of integrating geological considerations and land use planning. The second step is defining resources and locations to ultimately create a Map of Potentially Exploitable Resources.

Expected impact/goal of the practice: Integrating geological and mining considerations in land use planning with the involvement of regional authorities and by creating a cartographic representation of deposits.

Who is the target user group of the practice/intervention or implementing the practice/intervention? Geological survey and regional authorities
