An ‘Action’ Dialogue on ASM 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. The following two pages summarise the discussions from the dialogue process and is intended as an aide-memoire for participants to the dialogue.
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.
