Celebrating 30 Years of Impact: 1986-2016

As the final days of 2016 wind down, we are reflecting on the amazing work we do in collaboration with our partners. Together, we are having an impact—developing solutions to strengthen natural resource governance around the globe.

This year, as we celebrate 30 Years of Impact: 1986-2016, we’re excited to share with you our newest Annual Report. Through the special poster format, we spotlight how Partnership Africa Canada is breaking the link between conflict and minerals.
