EU Latin American Partnership on Raw Materials

The EU-Latin America Partnership on Raw Materials represents the will to move towards structured co-operation between the EU and seven Latin American partner countries (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay) in the extractive sectors.

The project builds on existing multilateral cooperation between entities and disciplines linked to the non-energy extractive industries life cycle and dependent industrial value chains. The aim is to unlock the full potential of the extractive industries for society, both as contributors to the local economies and as essential suppliers to the industrial value chains, as well as contributors to the United Nations’ Sustainable Developments Goals. The desire for this co-operation is founded on mutual recognition and commitment to the values of responsible and sustainable mining.
