Virtual Session 1

Mining for Peace? - Strategic Partnerships in DRC for Sustainable Development and Peace

Albeit the existence of a legal framework, national constitution, documents and laws defining how Mining activities in the DRC should improve the livelihood of the Congolese people, conflicts in this sector related to the diverse interests of mining companies, local communities and the state persist. There are recurring conflicts between large mining companies and artisanal miners, diggers and ore buying offices. The mining sector in the east of DRC is occupied by various armed groups to finance their warfare efforts. The pandemic of COVID-19 has exacerbated the opacity in mining sector and the socio-economic vulnerability of the poor.

With the intention to create remedy and contribute to peaceful coexistence between the stakeholders, SADRI and GIZ in DRC are bringing together the various actors involved in a space for exchange, dialogue and debate around the management of the mining sector. The session will focus on successes of multiactor-engagement as an impetus for peace and economic development.
