Our approach

We harness and share research knowledge on mining in Africa. Taking international good practice guidance, we interpret its relevance for Africa.

Who we work with

CSMI partners with institutions, organisations, companies and independent experts to achieve our goal of responsible mining. We have three key focus areas and three key work streams.

Courses

CSMI courses are also available as short courses. Students receive a certificate of attendance or a certificate of competence. These courses are of interest to practitioners, researchers, consultants, managers and regulators working in the field of environmental management, health and safety and mining.

Students from Environmental Science, Civil Engineering and Mining Engineering have found our courses of interest and of value to their careers. The outlines are available under Education and training.
