Leverage mineral wealth to drive investment and economic growth in mining communities
The mining industry should build prosperity in impacted rural communities. Yet, across Africa its ability to do so is uneven. While some communities have earned vast revenue and employment, others receive little economic benefit in return for the disruption on their land.
Communities in mining areas need to have the business structures and capacity to leverage mineral wealth. Our approach is to ensure that mining activity generates direct community benefits, while also stimulating economic activity in other sectors.
