Mining Shared Value

MSV uses a systems approach to improve the social and economic benefits of mining activity for the communities and countries that choose to host it by increasing local procurement. Specifically, Kyela works with the World Bank Group to develop the Extractives-Led Local Economic Diversification (ELLED) program which aims to support policy makers in extractives-rich countries to design and implement policies and programs that increase the positive contribution of extractive industries to the local economy.
