Analysis of Mombasa Artisanal Gold Trade Available from PPA-Funded IPIS Pilot

In April 2016, the PPA granted funds to the International Peace Information Service (IPIS) to implement a pilot monitoring system for artisanal gold production and trade in Mombasa, a major artisanal gold hub in eastern DRC. By engaging with local civil society in systemized and largely SMS-based data collection on production and trade, IPIS sought to enhance understanding of the dynamics and challenges affecting responsible sourcing, and to facilitate further transparency in the sector. IPIS has submitted its final report, which is now available on the grant website.
