Conflict Resolution and Conflict Management

Small-scale mining in developing nations is routinely associated with land use conflicts with other stakeholders, primarily large mining companies. The scale of these disputes (which occasionally involve armed conflict) is usually sufficient to have significant adverse impacts on the natural environment and the local population. These conflicts have proven very difficult to manage, and have imposed great costs on a broad range of stakeholders.
