This report suggests the approach of Smart Mineral Enterprise Development (SMED). Further it focuses on cobalt to highlight the bottlenecks and to identify alternative supply sources based on current exploration and recycling technologies. Additionally it proposes ways in which the international legal framework could be adapted to promote investments in critical minerals; and consider ways by which the public sector can assist the private sector in developing a SMED process that would bring forth more efficient and effective entrepreneurial activity to meet our green technology needs.
