Activities in Zimbabwe 2002-2007 Final Report
It is axiomatic that throughout the world artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) is driven by poverty. This is especially the case in Zimbabwe, where 80% of the population is unemployed, with most people living in conditions of extreme poverty. Mining can produce environmental and health risks but also significant contributions to low income communities and the economy, and there is a growing need for development assistance in this sector in Zimbabwe.
