Afghanistan: CLDP Conducts a Training Manual Workshop

June 24, 2019 - June 28, 2019

On June 24-28, 2019, in Istanbul and Izmir, Turkey, CLDP, in coordination with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), conducted Part II of a Training Manual Workshop. Participants included 19 legal and technical staff members, primarily of the Ministry of Mines and Petroleum of Afghanistan (MoMP) and focused on the new regulatory framework for implementing Afghanistan’s 2018 Minerals Law. This workshop is part of a two-year mining training course and is a continuation of Part I of the Training Manual Workshop held in Kabul in December 2018. The participants discussed the training manuals prepared for them by CLDP and USGS and traveled to an operating gold mine in Izmir to observe best practices in mine development and operation. It is expected that upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to train MoMP staff in the subjects they learned. Creating a cadre of high-level trainers will help build the capacity of MoMP to a level that will foster a business environment in the mining industry that is attractive to U.S. companies and helps develop the Afghan economy.
