The Mining Policy Framework (MPF) is a document of best practices to promote good governance in the mining sector. The MPF Framework was developed by the Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals, Metals and Sustainable Development (IGF) and was officially recognized as a unique document at the 19th Session of UN CSD  held in May 2011 in New York. The MPF Framework is implemented by the IGF  and is endorsed by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).
