INEX defines three priority fields of action to support its objectives

1. An in-depth knowledge of INEX geological information systems envisages improving the quality of information on geological exploration activities carried out or to be carried out in the DR Congo in order to cover little or poorly explored areas and lead to the generation of a national database documenting past and future work. 2. Reinforcement of human and institutional capacities Through the continuous supervision of the Universities to better direct their research towards what will interest the industry tomorrow. Through technical assistance, coaching and mentoring. Research institutions will benefit from a partnership for the improvement of geological and spatial data management. 3. Define a long-term vision for the mineral, water & energy, environmental and geotourism resources sector Provide a framework for strategic direction to better influence government policy on natural resources and build capacity in value chain analysis.
