At 5pm on the 19th of October in the Kramers Room, Dr Maideyi Meck will talk on 'African Mineral And Energy Resources Classification And Management System (AMREC) And Panafrican Reporting Code (PARC)'
The African Union Commission has recommended that a system for management of Africa’s mineral and energy resources i.e. African Mineral and Energy Resources Classification and Management System be put in place. A working group was put in place to come up with a classification system and a reporting code. Starting with the existing classifications and reporting codes the working group has come up with (UNFC-AMREC) and PARC. The two will be presented to the AU ministrial committee before year end. Dr Meck in her capacity as Secretary General of Geological society of Africa was invited by the working group as an observer in July to attend the session which was discussing the classification and reporting code at the 27th Colloquim on African Geology. In this presentation she will give an update of the classification and reporting code to date. Participants are free to put in their contributions. Dr Meck will be able to forward them to the working group as she will also attend the session that will be finalizing the classification and reporting code in November before it is presented to the African ministers
