Action dialogue on artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) in Tanzania

Fitsum Weldegiorgis, Frances Reynolds

Event/workshop report, 18 pages

A summary of the proceedings of the national ‘action dialogue’ on artisanal and small-scale mining in Tanzania, held in Geita from 7 to 10 November 2017, and coordinated by IIED in collaboration with HakiMadini, MTL Consulting, CIFOR and COWI. The purpose of the dialogue was to provide a platform for ASM stakeholders to identify issues and discuss possible solutions for an inclusive and responsible ASM sector. Some 90 participants attended including representatives of civil society, government departments, mining companies, national and regional ASM associations, academia, mining communities and ASM practitioners from within and outside Tanzania. The dialogue was informed by a number of stakeholder engagements, in-country research and ‘thematic dialogues’. The dialogue resulted in the beginnings of a roadmap for reform of the ASM sector and nomination of stakeholders to form a Tanzanian Learning and Leadership Group to take the process forward.
