2018 PPA Secretariat Funded by IOM
PPA member International Organization for Migration (IOM), through the USAID-funded Responsible Minerals Trade Program, has made a grant to RESOLVE to support facilitation and secretariat services to the PPA in 2018. These resources fund RESOLVE’s work to lead strategic planning, including Phase 2 scoping, and to engage and support the Governance Committee, oversee grantees and manage grants, plan and facilitate member meetings and work group calls, and convene regional stakeholders to address challenges in due diligence system alignment. IOM’s support to RESOLVE enables private sector contributions to directly support in-region activities and grants to organizations engaging directly on the ground.
IOM is motivated to support the common interests held by IOM and the PPA in promoting the development of fully traced, certified and legitimate mineral supply chains for the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) in particular and Great Lakes Region (GLR) overall.
