Artisanal and small-scale mining
Backgrounder, 2 pages
This backgrounder gives an overview of IIED's work on artisanal and small-scale mining – a five-year knowledge programme aiming to generate the know-how, skills, tools, advocacy and networks needed to improve policy and practice for the world’s artisanal and small scale miners.
This publication forms part of IIED’s work to identify pathways towards inclusive and responsible mining.
With support from the Ford Foundation, IIED is undertaking a robust research and engagement programme, including the convening of a 'visioning workshop' on artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM), to lay the foundations for a multi-stakeholder dialogue series on ASM.
