Story from the Field (DRC) - A new home for the mine authorities

Beside a 20 year old 40-square-meter wooden building, the provincial director of the North Kivu Mines Division, Emmanuel Dimubanze talks about where he and many of his 52 agents used to carry out their work to manage the minerals sec-tor across the Province of North Kivu - poor facilities in cramped offices with a leaky roof and unsuitable working conditions. Building a new office, however, had not been a straightforward proposition. Mr Dimubanze struggled to find funding before the solution came via the local basket fund financed through mineral export fees. While created in 2012, this basket fund for development projects only became operational after the launch of the iTSCi system in March 2014 which helped facilitate exports of minerals not associated with conflict or human rights abuses.
