    How does the initiative try to reach its objective?

    Australia can provide countries with the expertise they need to build a sustainable mining sector, making better use of revenues, improving socially and environmentally sustainable development, and growing the economy. It will draw on expertise from leading Australian academic institutions, the mining industry and non-government organisations (NGOs) who work in partnership with developing countries and other donors, and development institutions.
