"It's better to see something once, than to hear about it 1000 times."
The future of artisanal and industrial mining must reinvent itself. Reinventing means acknowledging that our current economic model is not delivering results that can reverse poverty and address inequality in extractive mining.
"...About 79% of the world's poor live in rural areas. The poverty rate in rural areas is 17.2%, i.e. three times higher than in urban areas. Almost half (46%) of the extreme poor are children under the age of 14...
Inequality of opportunity and poverty will exist in small-scale mining until workers will not have access to specific basic services that are essential for their future and until this access is not supported by companies and public policies..."
Enable more than 600,000 artisanal miners to have decent work and contribute to economic and social development
