Contact: Soyia Ellison,

KINSHASA - The Carter Center's mining governance program launched a revamped and improved Congo Mines website ( on June 24 in Kinshasa, the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The site, which was updated with support from the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, is an important resource for policy-makers, academics, and civil society organizations, both inside and outside of the DRC. It is a centralized source of information on the Congolese mining sector and includes company contracts and agreements, financial reports and revenues, environmental impact assessments, and government laws and regulations. The site also includes an interactive, multi-layer mining map.

Working in collaboration with Congolese civil society, The Carter Center seeks to increase the accessibility of information on the Congolese mining sector through the website, thus improving the accountability and transparency of the sector.
