The taskforce also includes representatives from the African Mining Partnership, the African Development Bank, UNCTAD, and UNIDO. The mining ministers' conference will be convened under the theme “Building a sustainable future for Africa 's extractive industry: The imperatives”. It will be the first time that African ministers responsible for mining will have met under a formal regional rubric since 1997.
