Abstract:
An investigation into how and why frameworks are developed led to the understanding of the facts that most frameworks or guides are developed for specific reasons. However, this study reveals that for a framework to be ‘effective’, certain factors ought to be ‘integrated’ in order to specifically address the aim and objectives of the particular framework – especially in specific sectors such as the extractive resources sector. A study of fifteen influential frameworks provided insight as to some outstanding factors that must be atleast considered in developing ‘an effective framework’ for a developing resources extraction sector. Although the knowledge of a granite quarry environment in a developing country has been used in expounding the study, the study is also a referral of ongoing research and can be applicable to the development of similar guides. So, because the principles discussed in this study were also applied in the development of this paper, the principles of this guide could also be applied by governing bodies, local governments, researchers and research institutes, non-governmental and private organisations in the extractive industry and beyond, for the development of ‘effective’ guides aimed at impacts control and waste management.

Description:
Highlights • The implementation of ‘effective frameworks’ can boost sustainable quarry management. • Issues experienced in the quarry sectors of other countries could be avoided in developing countries, if frameworks are developed to be more interactive. • Certain components are exceptional in framework development, as a fact, they would always remain key. • A ‘framework-development-framework’ with the right variables integrated, is essential for constructing a guide in quarries development. Because, the economic, social, and cultural impact of these activities do vary from location to location.
