Mining experts, policy makers, private sector representatives, civil society organizations and other stakeholders were urged to regard themselves as part of the process of creating a framework report on mining regimes in Africa. The ISG started its work in October 2007, under the leadership of the ECA. The first phase of its work involved producing a comprehensive body of knowledge, which will form the basis for developing future development- oriented mineral regimes in Africa. The second phase, which the AU has accepted to lead, will be an implementation phase, which will involve developing of toolkits, policy templates and guidelines, briefing notes and other instruments for use in revising mineral regimes in Africa. The ISG Framework Report will be submitted to the consideration and approval of the Second African Union Conference of Ministers Responsible for Mineral Resources Development to be held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
