Dutch funding to scale up mineral trade in the Great Lakes Region

iTSCi and Pact are delighted to welcome confirmation from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands (MFA) on funding for a three-year project to achieve "Scaling up Mineral Trade" in the Great Lakes region of central Africa. Funding will support activities of Pact, the implementing partner of the iTSCi Programme in the region, in order to bring more miners and their communities back into the responsible international market. This economic opportunity is expected to lead to improved security and governance in the local area. The project will also add social value through provision of training on savings and business skills, improving health and safety in artisanal mines, and addressing various human rights issues in the mining sector such as gender equity.
