The Observatory benefits, since its creation, from a deep understanding of the drivers that define best practice on mineral raw materials’ exploration, exploitation, recycling and trade. This knowledge is used to advance the Observatory vision and mission.

The annual report for 2018 synthesises the activities developed by the Board of Directors of the Observatory in the first year of the organisation. These activities were framed by a Strategic and a Business Plan, produced in 2017. The Business Plan established a three years horizon to create a fully operational organisation, capable of advancing international cooperation, support informed policymaking and enhancing the governance of mineral raw materials.

The primary outcomes of 2018 are the establishment of the communication infrastructure of the Observatory, including content curation and social media platforms, the start of structured dissemination activities and the development of the services offered to members.
