ASM Dialogue Programme: IIED Scoping Mission in Tanzania 18-23 Sept 2016

This is a report on a scoping visit by IIED to Arusha and Dar es Salaam from 18 to 23 September 2016. The aim of the visit was to understand the general context in relation to ASM policy, practice and perceptions, and assess the timeliness, demand and readiness for an IIED-modelled ASM dialogue programme.

Mining in Tanzania is a significant and rapidly-growing activity, with artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) accounting for around 1-1.5 million directly involved miners across the country. While important ASM policy initiatives have been introduced, the sector faces typical challenges commonly seen in other parts of the world. A multi-stakeholder ‘dialogue’ that is participatory and solution-oriented would help to understand and explore key ASM issues and bring about consensus-based reform in policy and practice.
