Development of Regional Database on Mineral Flows
International Conference of the Great Lakes Region
The International Conference of the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR) is an intergovernmental organization of 12 Central African governments. Its members include Angola, Burundi, the Central African Republic, the Republic of Congo, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kenya, Rwanda, Sudan, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia. The Conference Secretariat is located in Bujumbura, Burundi.
The ICGLR is charged with implementing the Regional Initiative on Fight against the Illegal Exploitation of Natural Resources (RINR). The RINR consists of 6 Tools. One of these tools is the Regional Certification Mechanism (RCM), which applies to flows of four designated minerals â€“ tin, tungsten, tantalum and gold â€“ within and from the countries of the ICGLR. A second tool is the Regional Database of Mineral Flows (Regional Database), which is to be integrated into the RCM.
The standards and procedures of the RCM are described in the ICGLR Regional Certification Mechanism (RCM) â€” Certification Manual and ICGLR Regional Certification Mechanism (RCM) â€” Appendices. PDFs of these documents are available as part of the bidders package.
IMPACT is a Canadian non-governmental organization which is working in a technical support role to the Conference Secretariat and Member States to aid in the development of certain elements of the RCM, including the development of a Regional Database. In the framework of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed on 17th April 2014, IMPACT and the ICGLR Secretariat are seeking a contractor to deliver the Regional Database of Mineral Flows for the ICGLR Regional Certification Mechanism based on the requirements established.
