The Mining Legislation Reform Initiative (MLRI) seeks to ensure that mining in Armenia provides sufficient benefits to the country and local communities.  The initiative involves drafting and passing legislation that elevates the socio-economic benefits of mining, while reducing the negative environmental and public health impacts.

The MLRI collaborates with civil society, advocacy groups, academic institutions, and relevant national and international organizations to introduce positive changes to the mining sector in Armenia. The MLRI works with key governmental and legislative bodies to ensure that draft responsible mining legislation is passed into law.
