The Artisanal Mining and Property Rights (AMPR) activity will improve land and resource governance and promote responsible supply chains for minerals to mitigate against conflict, reduce flows into illicit financial networks, improve economic livelihoods and self-reliance for poor artisanal mining communities, support sustainable environmental practices, increase revenues from artisanal and small scale mining, and promote social cohesion, key U.S. Government goals. Among other activities, this activity will help establish and improve artisanal mining policies and laws, address alternative livelihoods and land use planning, provide training at the local and national levels, and work with artisanal and small scale mining stakeholders at all levels - from local communities to international fora. This activity will adopt a gender sensitive and multidisciplinary approach to address the development challenges associated with informal artisanal and small scale mining.
