Regional Initiative against the Illegal Exploitation of Natural Resources

Harmonization of National Legislations

As prescribed in Article 22 of the Protocol on the Fight against the Illegal Exploitation of Natural Resources, the legal provisions of the Protocol are to be domesticated by the ICGLR Member States into their national legislations. Furthermore, the Lusaka Declaration committed all Member States to domesticating the Protocol on the Fight against the Illegal Exploitation of Natural Resources in the Great Lakes Region.

The harmonization approach comprises the identification of key differences between legal frameworks governing the mineral sector in the different Member States and the legal provisions of the Protocol. The harmonization of national legislations is a prerequisite for any step towards the implementation of the Protocol on the Fight against the Illegal Exploitation of Natural Resources.
