Assessing the quality and status of collected data and case studies: Work package leaders of WP2, WP3, WP4, WP5 and WP8 meeting

During the first half of year of the project, WP2 (Land Use Planning Policies & Practices) collected and structured data on minerals and land use in Europe. During the same period, WP 3 (Case studies of land use planning in exploration and mining) selected, described and analyzed 15 cases around Europe relative to minerals entering land use plans for aspects that represent good practices within the stream tackled by MinLand project.

MinLand work package leaders of WP2, WP3, WP4, WP5 and WP8 met at the Geological Survey of Sweden in Uppsala, from 17 to 18 September 2018, with the main objective to access the quality of content of the data obtained within WP2 and WP3 and for the need of WP4 and WP5. Furthermore, necessary coordination between WP2, WP3, WP4, WP5 and WP8 were discussed.

Finally, the Board worked on preparation of several local workshops for stakeholders that will take place from October 2018 to February 2019.
