Development of Sustainable Mining Strategies in Chile with a Regionalized National Model (BMBF FKZ: 01DN16030)
Chile owns almost 30% of the global copper reserves and its mining is of major importance to the national economy. Due to this the international economic development has a big influence on Chile’s prosperity. The research project wants to assess the vulnerability of the Chilean economy in consequence of their heavy concentration on the raw material copper in the medium- and long-term.
The basis for this is a recently initiated project cooperation with Prof. Dr. Aroca from the Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez. The study focusses on the economic and social aspects of a sustainable development of the Chilean copper mining. Possible ways to make copper mining more sustainable are sketched out to the decision-makers and are further illustrated by a macro-economic projection and simulation-model.
