The Learning Alliance on Extractive Industries (LEA 1) looked at the ways in which Latin American (LA) countries plan and implement extractive industry investments from social, political and environmental perspectives. It also identified good practices and lessons in environmental protection and mitigation, social conflict management and extractive rent distribution. LEA 1 lasted from March until November 2012, and was run as part of the DFID funded programme “Evidence and Lessons from Latin America“. It consisted of online exchange and learning activities addressed to pre-selected experts from Africa, Asia and Latin America. The overall goal was for participants to gain knowledge of LA policies and practices that promote responsible investments in the extractive industry and which could be applied in other countries/contexts.
