This research study will have three main objectives namely:

  • conduct an overarching synthesis to understand the impact of small-scale mining operations on economies and livelihoods in low to middle income countries, and explore the implications for three case study countries in East Africa;
  • in three selected case study countries (Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda) map the scale of small-scale mining operations and assess the current and potential national and sub-national economic contribution of the sector and policy approaches to maximise benefits for poor (drawing on the work of others where possible); and;
  • make key recommendations to maximize the economic contribution of small-scale mining sector to promote inclusive and sustained growth for Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda both at the national level and for relevant sub-national geographic areas.
