The Leading Practice Sustainable Development Program for the Mining industry has just released its Water Stewardship Handbook, outlining best practice in water management in mining and providing guidance for the mining industry on sustainable water management issues. The complexities associated with managing water can exist above the level of a single operation and may be important across a region, the whole of a company or even the industry in the national or global context.
Mike Harold, Principal Advisor - Policy and Governance at Inside Infrastructure is one of its contributing authors, with key contributions to the chapter on Water governance and lead authorship on Catchment water management chapters. Mike is recognized as a subject matter expert in these areas, with eight years’ experience at Rio Tinto Iron Ore as a key part of its Water Strategy Team, as well as a wealth of experience in Government water regulatory agencies.
The Handbook provides guidance for operational and corporate personnel on taking a risk-based approach and developing practical, fit-for-purpose solutions to mitigating risks, and shares practical approaches to improving mine water management and reducing water risk by practicing water stewardship
