Transforming mining through dialogue
Artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) can make a positive
contribution to inclusive and equitable sustainable development
and growth. IIED’s ASM dialogue programme provides a much needed
forum for multi-stakeholder collaboration and knowledge
sharing to promote better governance, greater voice and secure
and productive employment across the mining sector and
complementary rural livelihoods. By ensuring that all stakeholders
participate, that the process is locally owned, and that discussions focus on solutions, our dialogues can help align this impoverished and vulnerable sector with national priorities and sustainable development agendas.
With an engaged government, private sector and multi-stakeholder engagements already in place with artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) communities, Ghana provides an excellent opportunity for a dialogue that delivers solutions to the challenges facing the ASM sector.
