Pilot Study: Advancing Transparency in Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining and the Mineral Supply Chains in the Great Lakes Region
So far EITI reporting in most countries focuses on large-scale Oil, Gas and Mining operations leaving aside the artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) sector and the respective mineral supply chains. However, ASM is a significant economic activity with regard to mineral production and export in many developing countries, including many Member States of the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR).
CoC Baseline Evaluation
The scope of this review covers the following three supply chains of minerals, all of which have implemented traceability mechanisms and have successfully attained the status of “Green Flag” sites granted by the International Conference of the Great Lakes region (ICGLR) Regional Certification Mechanism (RCM).
PAC Report
The African Great Lakes Region faces a number of interrelated challenges stemming from the trade in minerals. Topping the list is the conflict minerals phenomenon, whereby minerals and mine sites are used as a source of financing by armed groups, be they rebels, local militias or military forces acting independently of government control3. While this phenomenon occurs primarily within the borders of the DRC, the deleterious effects are felt throughout the region
