Critical Resource director Daniel Litvin was recently interviewed in The Economist on the policies and approaches taken by major mining firms to avoid environmental and social criticisms of their projects.

- Among our recent client projects: an analysis of access strategies adopted by resource firms, focusing on two mineral-rich countries, one in Africa, one in Asia; ongoing support for a major initiative to understand and improve the socio-economic impacts of mining; development of a guidance manual for resource companies on how to build greivance mechanisms for local communities.
- Critical Resource has recently updated its website to provide more information both on LicenseSecure™ – our proprietary tool which evaluates the health of the socio-political license of resource projects – and also on the range of other services we provide to clients.
