The ACTION Support Centre facilitated and provided rapporteuring services for a series of meetings for the International Alliance on Natural Resources in Africa. Of interest to ACTION Support Centre was the Pan African Advocacy project which was a research conducted on five countries in Africa; Angola, DRC, Kenya, South Africa, and Zimbabwe. The research documented findings regarding the impact of the extractive industry on communities in mining areas. The case studies are on human rights impacts as per the African Charter and Human and People’s rights. Out of these case studies Model Mining Legislation for Africa would be developed and would ensure the protection and promotion of human rights in relation to the African charter.
