Since 2003, the members of the Environmental Monitoring Advisory Board (EMAB) have been working together to fulfill their responsibilities. These are listed in the Environmental Agreement for the Diavik project.
EMAB is a consensus board with the task of ensuring that all those responsible for protecting the Lac De Gras environment, where Diavik Diamond Mines is located, are doing their jobs.
EMAB is unique in that it was the first such board to include Aboriginal Parties as signatories, whose primary interest is protecting the land of their ancestors for future generations.
The Environmental Agreement explains EMAB's funding.
In September 2014 EMAB updated the strategic plan to guide us over the next five years. The last strategic plan was formally approved by EMAB in June 2008.
