Sierra Leone Case Study

ASM SL CoverThis report is a case study containing a situational analysis of artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) of gold and diamonds in and around the Malema and Nomo areas of Sierra Leone's Gola Rainforest National Park (GRNP).  This report was invited by the GRNP and is also part of the Artisanal and Small Scale Mining in Protected Areas and Critical Ecosystems (ASM-PACE) Programme, led by a partnership between WWF and Estelle Levin Ltd. to support conservation and mining stakeholders manage the issue of ASM in "PACE" locations constructively and sustainably. The project uses a scientific foundation of knowledge, participatory methods and rights-based approaches to work with miners and their communities, rather than in opposition, to design sustainable, win-win solutions.
