15th Forum on Responsible Mineral Supply Chains

Session 6: Getting the most out of monitoring and measurement

May 4, 2022 | 11:30 AM - 12:45 PM


Hearing from on-the-ground stakeholders and researchers on how we can use M&E to identify and resolve systemic blockages to due diligence Interest in evidence and data on the uptake and impact of due diligence has been steadily growing. To bring this data to life and make it actionable, efforts have also been underway to stimulate innovative approaches that help reveal what is working and what adjustments need to be made to enhance the positive impacts of due diligence. This session will begin with what existing evidence suggests about progress and shortcomings, including with perspectives from mineral-producing countries. It will spotlight several innovative approaches to filling in data gaps on systemic challenges. This also spans the need for sometimes granular data on issues that impact people along mineral supply chains—for example, using gender-disaggregated data in different ways to enhance gender-responsive due diligence. The session will also explore how we can leverage industry schemes and due diligence programmes to generate higher-quality data on the uptake and impacts of due diligence.
