About Us

Malawi is well endowed with a variety of mineral resources, such as Corundum (ruby), coal, bauxite, agate, vermiculite, monzanite, and uranium, mining is currently estimated to contribute only 1% to the country’s GDP. This can partly be attributed to past focus on small-scale and informal mining operations involving quarry stone, gemstones, pottery-ceramics, salt aggregate, limestone, sand and clay (pottery and brick moulding), and partly to the lack of monitoring of larger scale operations by relevant Government Ministries.

About the Network

The Natural Resource Justice Network in Malawi (NRJN) was founded in Dec 2007.
It was founded in response to governmental inability to safeguard the interests of the people at the grassroots against the predatory tendencies of foreign investors who appear to have all the advantages at the bargaining table. This disparate grouping of human rights, environmental, economic and social justice NGOs gains its strength and direction through a common stand on sustainable and equitable exploitation of natural resources in Malawi.
