Answering the How? Ploughing back 10% of revenues from mining companies: The case of Solwezi Municipal Council (01/02/18)
On the 14 December 2015, Solwezi Municipal Council passed a resolution to “enhance service provision to communities affected by mining activities”. This resolution followed a proposal to invest property rates collected by the council from mining companies within mining host communities.
It is against this backdrop that YAD working with Publish What You Pay Zambia (PWYPZ), decided to initiate the development of this briefing paper, which gives a contextual analysis and provides guidelines for the implementation and realization of the resolution passed by Solwezi Municipal Council.
