1. SARW is a programme managed by the Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa (OSISA), with a clear mandate to look at the general governance of mineral resources in the Southern Africa Development Community member states. We work with host governments, civil society groups, private companies and the host communities.
2. I am in charge of community campaigns and mobilisation in the following countries: Zimbabwe; Malawi; Democratic Republic of Congo; Mozambique; and Zambia. In my capacity as country coordinator for Zambia, I work with different communities in all of the regions of the country, and specifically communities that host and are affected by mining, on the following issues:
a) Corporate Social Investment;
c) Social and Environmental Accountability;
d) Transparency and Accountability.
We have been working with these sorts of communities for over 9 years and we work with most of them at different levels. For some, we work with them directly where we offer technical and financial support, while others we work with through local partners and the government
