Abstract

RESPONSIBLE AND SUSTAINABLE MANAGEMENT OF MINERAL RESOURCES: JMG’s PERSPECTIVE

Management of natural resources is not an easy task. Nowadays, people keep questioning or rather criticizing our actions from anything small to big, what more on exploitation of mineral resources that got something to do with environment. At times, the complaints are not fully factual but mixed with half-truths putting unnecessary fear to people and giving bad names to the industry. For that matter, the challenge to manage natural resources, like it or not, has to be responsible and sustainable besides at the same time able to be inclusive and enhance lives and livelihood of people especially adjacent communities. For the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources and in particular JMG, a federal department under it, governing the mineral resources is of paramount importance as the exploitation or mining of minerals will always be scrutinised.

In this paper emphasis is focussed on some policies of mineral resources in the country with respect to responsibility and sustainability and to a certain extent inclusivity in balancing the needs of the industry, States’ interests and the Federal Government program on “Transformasi Mineral Industri 2021-2030 (TIM 2021-2030)”.
