ASM and COVID-19: IGF member survey of challenges and opportunities
COVID-19 has already had significant impacts on the lives and livelihoods of a substantial portion of the women and men involved in artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM). In July 2020, the IGF surveyed some of its members to get their views on how the pandemic has affected their ASM sectors, as well as some of the key challenges and opportunities that have emerged as a result of the global health crisis. 21 member states participated in the survey from across the IGF’s three principal language groups: English, French, and Spanish.
