Partnership Africa Canada (PAC), a non-governmental organization, is supporting the efforts of the ICGLR and Great Lakes countries to put in place their regional mineral certification mechanism for tin, tunsten, tantaljum and gold. Via its Just Gold project (Alimasi ya sawa), it is piloting the creation of DRC’s first conflict-free artisanal gold supply chain. PAC also works to increase women’s meaningful participation in the development and implementation of artisanal mining policies affecting their everyday lives and those of their communities.
