sharing in governance of extractive industries
Coinciding with the launch of the beta version of the Delve platform at the OECD Forum on Responsible Mineral Supply Chains in April, the 2019 State of the Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining Sector report showcases data contributions made to Delve and demonstrates the potential for a deeper sector analysis when stakeholders share data.
As the first report of a planned annual series, the 2019 edition explores the origins and impact of what is identified as the ‘global data gap’ on artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM). It outlines how through collaboration, the gap can be addressed to guide more effective ASM formalisation efforts across the globe.
Further in-depth analyses of the data gaps and importance of ASM is provided through regional and country-specific case study countries—Ghana, Mongolia, Guyana, Peru, Morocco, and India—drawing on the insights of Delve collaborators and data on the platform.
Finally, the lessons learned from collating dispersed ASM data are presented, and the report concludes with a shortlist of key recommendations for improving data collection and sharing.
