This CCOP’s book project on the "Best Practices of Mine Rehabilitation and Decommissioning Programmes of Success Stories in East and Southeast Asia” was originally proposed by the Mines and Geosciences Bureau, Republic of the Philippines in 2013. The proposal was aimed to encourage CCOP Member Countries to participate in the project and contribute their successful case studies of how the mining companies have taken their efforts to maintain and protect the environments and their mining locations. This book project officially started in 2015 with a total of three meetings in 2015, 2017 and 2018. The majority of the Member Countries have participated in this activity.
This book has gathered successful stories from nine CCOP Member Countries, including: Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Papua New Guinea and Thailand. Each country has a different background, mining history & situation, and study cases. The materials should provide a good source for information and education, especially on the mine closure and monitoring.
