The National Forum on Mineral Governance in Cameroon was held from 10 to 11 October 2018, at the Djeuga Palace Hotel in Yaounde. The forum was organized within the framework of the Mines-Environment-Health and Society Project (ProMESS) which is being implemented by FODER with the financial support of the European Union. It was chaired by the Secretary General of the Ministry of Mines, Industry and Technological Development (MINMIDT) and the Minister’s representative as well as the Representative of his Excellency the Ambassador of the European Union Delegation to Cameroon, Mr. Arnaud Demoor, Chief Adviser of the Cooperation.
 


 
The Forum on Mining Governance (FGM) draws inspiration from the Forum on Forest Governance (FGF) which has been held four times (2011, 2013, 2014 and 2016) in Cameroon in collaboration with the International Center for Development and Training (CIDT) of the University of Wolverhampton. The FGM therefore reflects FODER's ownership and application of the concept underpinning the forest governance forum, which FODER has adapted and applied to the mining sector.
