The Ministry of Mines, Energy and Rural Electrification (MMERE) continues to strive to address legal, institutional and systemic issues that impact the Ministry’s ability to carry out its functions effectively. This is carried out within the framework of national strategies, policies and plans relevant to the Ministry’s work that promote transparency and accountability in how the Ministry and its statutory boards facilitate, evaluate and grant licenses, permits and leases in accordance with the Acts of Parliament that are administered by the Ministry.

Obligations to regional and international conventions, treaties, programs and initiatives such as the Montreal Protocol, the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative and the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have also influenced the Ministry’s pivot towards legal and policy reforms that promote sustainable development while being more receptive to good governance measures.
