The Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals, Metals and Sustainable Development (IGF) supports more than 75 nations committed to leveraging mining for sustainable development to ensure negative impacts are limited and financial benefits are shared. It is devoted to optimizing the benefits of mining to achieve poverty reduction, inclusive growth, social development, and environmental stewardship.

The IGF is focused on improving resource governance and decision making by governments working in the sector. It provides a number of services to members including: in-country assessments; capacity-building and individualized technical assistance; and guidance documents and conferences which explore good international practices and provide an opportunity to engage with industry and civil society.

The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) serves as Secretariat for the IGF since October 2015. Core funding is provided by the Governments of Canada and the Netherlands.
