Emergency action needed for vulnerable artisanal and small-scale mining communities and supply chains

As the corona virus sweeps the globe, affecting the health and lives of millions, the pandemic is wreaking further economic havoc on the lives of artisanal, small scale miners and their communities. Around 83 per cent of the world’s mining workforce relies on these mines for their livelihood. That comes to roughly 40.5 million people. These people were vulnerable before the corona pandemic and even more so now.

We – the undersigned global civil society organizations and community-based associations – are calling for immediate and concerted action from governments, financing institutions, international organizations, private sector actors and others to support artisanal mining communities and to shore up their resilience in this time of corona virus crisis.


What people say about us

I joined the RJC in 2006 to ensure that small businesses were not left behind. I actually found the process way more useful than I ever imagined and it helped me and my business to ‘grow up’. It showed me some things I really needed like procedures and safety guidelines. My little team all worked together to get through it, which helped to empower them too. The RJC team were always there to advise and support along the way.
