Baseline Assessment of Development Minerals in Uganda: Volume 1

The ACP-EU Development Minerals Programme seeks to build the profile and improve the management of Development Minerals. Development Minerals are minerals and materials that are mined, processed, manufactured and used domestically in industries such as construction, manufacturing, infrastructure and agriculture.

Through capacity building of diverse stakeholders in government, private sector and civil society, the Programme aims to: (i) Enhance employment and incomes, including those of women; (ii) Improve the policy and regulatory environment; (iii) Minimize environmental impacts on communities; (iv) Address individual and community rights and preventing conflict; (v) Ensure decent working conditions and (vi) Facilitate South-South cooperation and cross-country learning.

In order to support these aims and, in particular, country-level efforts of the ACP-EU Development Minerals Programme in Uganda, a comprehensive “Baseline Assessment and Value Chain Analysis of Development Minerals in Uganda” was undertaken. The assessment is divided into two volumes:

Volume 1: Baseline Assessment of Development Minerals in Uganda. The first volume is comprised of four main components: (i) baseline profile of the sector; (ii) policy, legal and institutional framework; (iii) institutional operating context; and (iv) analysis of environmental, occupational and social impacts.
