Abstract: 

This handbook constitutes one of the battles being fought by civil society organisations to promote and protect the rights of communities living adjacent to mining areas against the operations of extractive industries, the state and other individuals who violate their Environmental, Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (EESCR). Its objective is to assist legislators to further appreciate and build their knowledge on the key issues that they should focus on in carrying out their representative, oversight and legislative role in the extractive sector. The handbook seeks to explain some key concepts in the extractive sector and give policy and legal solutions within the context of recent developments in the sector in Zimbabwe. The main thrust is to promote and protect the EESCR rights of mining communities.
