My main focus is on artisanal and small scale mining, mainly on the social, technical, health and safety, environmental aspects, in particular through technical assistance projects on rural production of stones, gemstones and gold mining. I am also involved in the definition of mining policies and legal frameworks at State or Inter-regional Community levels. My recent work focuses on certification and traceability processes as incentives for better practices.
