Seeking a trainer on Environment, Community, Health and Safety in the mining of 'Neglected Development Minerals'

The ACP-EU Development Minerals Programme are seeking an international expert to assist in the delivery of a Regional Training Workshop on Environment, Community, Health and Safety in the Neglected Development Minerals Sector. Neglected Development Minerals refer to industrial minerals, construction materials, dimension stones and semi-precious stones.  

The mining of Neglected Development Minerals can have significant social and environmental impacts with consequences for the health and safety of workers and surrounding communities.

The training workshop will be held in Accra, Ghana (15-18 March, 2016). The workshop will be attended by around forty participants from Benin, Burkina Faso, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Guinea, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Togo, Senegal and Sierra Leone.

The workshop has the following objectives:

  • Increase the awareness of environment, community, and health and safety issues and challenges;
  • Facilitate south-south knowledge exchange on the practices and governance arrangements necessary for the sector to contribute to inclusive and sustainable development;
  • Build the capacity of individual stakeholders through participation in the training workshop and the preparation of return-to-work plans.

Under the supervision of the UNDP Programme Technical Specialist the Training Consultant will:

  • Prepare a draft outline of the training agenda;
  • Adapt the existing training curricula (including presentations, activities and case studies) to the West African context;
  • Deliver training in close collaboration with the program team;
  • Assist the training workshop participants to formulate a return-to-work plan;
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of the training and make recommendations for improvement;
  • Prepare a workshop report capturing the key discussions and outcomes of the training including recommendations for further improvements based on evaluation results.

Working knowledge of French is an advantage.
