Today, thanks to support from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDBF) , the Capacity Building Center for artisanal and small-scale mining of the Alliance for Responsible Mining, launches its new e-learning platform. The platform offers online courses aimed at people who work or interact with the artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) sector and want to improve their understanding of it.
“We want to help miners find the local technical support they need and that is why the Capacity Building Center seeks to strengthen the expertise available in their territories. The Center also creates links between local governments, institutions and companies to facilitate formalization processes and the inclusion of ASM in the mining sector. ” Said Lina Villa, Executive Director of the Alliance for Responsible Mining.
