The Ministry of Industry, Mines and Energy, and sister Ministries and agencies whose mandates impact on mineral development have an important role to play in fulfilling this national mandate. Therefore, to assist in the consideration of how Cambodia can move toward these goals this brief poses the following question: 'What are the institutional, structural and ethical considerations for the achievement of responsible mining in Cambodia'. The brief does not assume how such overarching intentions should be implemented. Instead it focuses more on establishing a critical framework for drafting policies and laws, and guiding administration and management to achieve responsible minerals development in Cambodia.
