Transparency is critical in holding the State and the Centre accountable throughout all processes related to the extraction of India’s natural resources.
What We Do
One of MIRA’s objectives is to advocate for radical transparency in the extractive sector in India. We have developed an India Extractives Transparency Charter to foster greater transparency about extractive industry activities and enable citizens to use the information to hold duty bearers responsible.
To develop the Charter’s objectives, multi-stakeholder consultations were held in states such as Rajasthan and Jharkhand. As a result, the minimum principles for transparency and information disclosure, as well as the types of information to be disclosed, were established.
MIRA has also advised actions to assist civil society organisations and activists in advocating for an effective, credible, and practical transparency framework in the extractive industry.
We support the campaigns organised by various PWYP members. MIRA participates in global conventions, conducts local research, signs international charters, and promotes mining industry sustainable protocols.
