An NGO coalition promoting human and environmental rights at the UN.


The NGO Mining Working Group (MWG) is a coalition of NGOs that, in partnership with our members and effected local communities, advocates at and through the United Nations for human and Environmental rights as related to extractive industries.

The MWG identifies the following key actors that we can address through advocacy:

  • UN Member States
  • UN agencies, and the international community
  • Effected communities; local and national civil society

  • Lists can be bulleted or numbered.
  • Indent and outdent list items to create outlines.
