IPIS – Data Collection at Artisanal Gold Trading Hubs
IPIS maps security dynamics (e.g., artisanal mining presence, mine sites, presence of armed groups) in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania, and the Central African Republic. IPIS also works to build capacity of local government and civil society.
The PPA supported project by IPIS that sought to enhance and facilitate transparency in the DRC artisanal gold sector by engaging with local civil society in systemized data collection on production and trade. The project further aimed to deepen civil society’s understanding of the dynamics and needs of the whole supply chain, and to build technical and analytical capacity for data collection, management, and report writing.
