Towards a New Shared Vision of the Extractive Industry

The successful completion of this challenge requires understanding and resolving the causes of this conflict and improving, expanding, and distributing the sector’s value to contribute more effectively to the sustainable development of Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). In this spirit, the IDB promoted the creation of the Latin American Group for the Extractive Industry (GLASE).
