dc.description.abstractThe Africa Mining Vision adopted by the African Union Summit in 2009 recognizes that harnessing Africa’s natural resource endowment on a sustainable basis is critical for Africa’s development. One of the interventions proposed under the framework for action is to promote environmentally sustainable, safe and socially responsible mining and material stewardship that includes mining communities as beneficiaries. Artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) is widespread in Africa and exploits a very large number of minerals. This sector is however beset with a number of challenges, which prevent it from reaching its full developmental potential. This regional workshop is identified as one of the activities to support better environmental governance of the mining sector at the regional level, and is jointly organized with the African Minerals Development Center (AMDC). The meeting focused on the implementation of the Africa Mining Vision through respective Country Mining Visions in the context of artisanal and small-scale mining.en
