This paper is part of a special issue on Development Minerals based on the Industrial Minerals Research Symposium that took place at the African Union in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in October 2016, under the auspices of the Africa Mining Legislation Atlas, a partnership between the World Bank Group, the African Legal Support Facility, and the African Union Commission, as well as the ACP-EU Development Minerals Programme, a partnership between the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States, European Union and United Nations Development Programme.

In this meeting, twenty-one African policy makers, academics and development practitioners came together at the headquarters of the African Union Commission to draft model legislation for the quarrying and small-scale mining of 'Development Minerals' and contribute to a special issue about Development Minerals in Africa.
