The Leading Practice Sustainable Development Program (LPSDP) for the Mining Industry program promotes sustainable mining practices. The program developed a series of handbooks which provide mining managers, communities and regulators with information on leading practice approaches to mining management.

By sharing Australia’s expertise in mine management and planning, we can encourage best practice sustainable mining both in Australia and overseas.

We developed the handbooks in partnership with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and in consultation with:

  • minerals industry operators
  • academia
  • peak bodies
  • training providers
  • the Minerals Council of Australia
  • the Australian Government and state and territory governments

Read the handbook series

Several of the handbooks have been translated into different languages including; Bahasa Indonesia, French, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Mongolian, Spanish and Vietnamese.
