About the Watchlist

About the Watchlist

Partnership Africa Canada is one of the world’s leading organizations in the field of natural resource governance. In 2003, the organization was jointly nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize with Global Witness for its outstanding efforts to halt the global trade in conflict diamonds. Today, PAC continues to engage with a number of global and national efforts to regulate the trade of high value and conflict prone minerals.

 

The Diamond Watchlist is PAC`s way of summarizing our current concerns about diamonds, governments and Kimberley Process oversight in areas where perennial problems seem never to be solved. The list is an advisory to consumers, the retail trade, the media and others concerned that diamonds in some countries still fail to meet the tests of adequate regulation, good business practice and common decency.
