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.
