Thematic videos from Latin American mining regions
FCM’s CISAL program works with Peruvian and Colombian local governments in mining areas to deliver services effectively, manage finances responsibly and build mechanisms to support long-term local economic development. The program has recently posted thematic videos from its regions in Peru, which are a visual baseline or testimony from the regions about how they see development, what is the role of women etc. It can be presented as a way to share with the world what communities are thinking in mining regions.
