ASM sector reform in Ghana
Friends of the Nation, in collaboration with the International Institute of Environment and Development (IIED), hosted a multi-stakeholder, solutions-focused dialogue on artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM), from the 19th January to 22nd January in Tarkwa, the Western Region of Ghana.
The dialogue saw over 55 participants –artisanal miners, local and national government representatives, large-scale mining company staff, and civil society organisations – come together to collaboratively develop a ‘roadmap’ for sectoral reform in Ghana’s artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) sector.
This sketch ‘road map’ draws on both the research report and the discussions from the four-day January 2016 dialogue. It forms the basis for further work by stakeholders in the ASM sector. It is just a ‘placeholder’ for key themes. The next step is to turn it into a detailed strategy and work plan
Through dialogue, IIED is providing a neutral space for stakeholders to identify solutions to the challenges facing the artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) sector. Dialogue will be grounded in local context with parity of voice across all the key stakeholders, including artisanal and small-scale miners themselves.
