Recent advisory projects
Expertise speaks volumes bringing book to fruition for EITI
CMA played a key role in the creation of 'Drilling Down', a milestone publication commissioned by the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), the global body that aims to strengthen governance by improving transparency and accountability in the extractives industries sector (mining and oil and gas).
Drawing on our extensive network of contacts worldwide, we assembled a team of specialists to advise on and contribute to the authoritative book, which gives a step-by-step explanation of each phase of EITI implementation and unpicks the complex technical and strategic issues involved.
Advising the World Bank on mining policy reform
Having conducted successful reviews into the Egyptian Mineral Resources Authority and Yemen Geological Survey & Mineral Resources Board, CMA was contracted by the World Bankâs IFC PEP-MENA (Private Enterprise Partnership for the Middle East & North Africa) to deliver proposals on the reform of mining policy in Egypt and Yemen.
The reports were used to streamline licensing and administrative procedures governing the mineral resources sector in both countries to improve efficiency and attract inward investment.
