GRA has conducted a fact finding mission on 24th – 25th August 2017which involved discussions with district leaders and the artisanal miners. The key recommendation emanating from the fact finding mission was to hold a National stakeholders dialogue that brings miners, government, CSOs and other relevant stakeholders.
It is against this background that GRA, Saferworld and DGSM are organising the said national dialogue that aims at;
Providing a meaningful and productive platform to deliberate on current issues affecting Artisanal and Small Scale mining in Uganda.
Disseminating information on the conflict analysis of Uganda’s mining sector and key considerations for investment in the Mining industry to inform the mining review process.
Jointly developing a strategy for the effective management, regularization and co-option of ASM into the main stream mining sector.
To discuss the role of civil society Organisations and other duty bearers in regularizing the Artisanal and Small Scale Mining activities.
