Development of Risk Assessment and Follow-Up Committees of multiple stakeholders in the artisanal production zones in the Member States of Liptako-Gourma
Date: July to November 2022
Countries: Burkina Faso, Mali and Níger
Implementing partners: Alliance for Responsible Mining
To improve application of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas in the three Member States of Liptako-Gourma: Mali, Niger, and Burkina Faso, through the development of risk assessment and follow-up pilots and multiple-stakeholder committees.
This project comes from the need of strengthening a binding traceability scheme for minerals with the creation of groups with multiple stakeholders to identify and monitor risks in the mining sector in the countries of Liptako-Gourma (Burkina Faso, Mali, and Niger). Previous experiences and studies show the need to create streamlining, multiple-stakeholder structures to identify and manage risks in the gold supply chain. ARM will implement a consultation stage for the stakeholders, create a risk assessment and follow-up committee in each country, and support their development towards the autonomous operation.
