Kenya: Zambia and Kenya have recently published their mining cadastre data online. These countries join a growing group of States that have decided to put practical effect to internal efforts to drive operational efficiencies, improve stakeholder communications, reduce opportunities for corruption and improve transparency within their respective mining sectors.
“It is exciting that Zambia, a leading copper producer; and Kenya, an emerging exploration destination, have both decided to leverage their investments in FlexiCadastre to publish their mining cadastre data online. This supports not only various Extractive Industries Transparency Initiatives but also helps the Ministries to improve the data quality within their mining cadastre systems through effective stakeholder communication,” said Bill Feast, Managing Director of Spatial Dimension.
“This is also the first step towards a transactional online mining cadastre system for Zambia. Spatial Dimension is currently working with the Ministry of Mines, Energy and Water Development in Lusaka to create an online mining cadastre system to provide self-service functionality to all stakeholders,” Feast added.
