8 January 2018. The Peruvian government might have to deal with more mining-related social protests in 2018, says a risk brief published today by Verisk Maplecroft.

According to the firm, if 2017 saw several projects slowing down or stopping due to the 171 formally registered conflicts that took place throughout the country, the approval of the supreme decree 042-2017 in December, which relaxes the environmental permitting process for medium and large-scale mining schemes, will only exacerbate the problem.
