The artisanal and small-scale (ASM) gold sector finds itself excluded from formal access to finance. Establishing formal financing channels for ASM gold mining is essential: it can help lift the sector out of poverty and address key social and environmental issues. Under the right conditions, formal investment into ASM can be done successfully, with a large potential to scale up impact and with decent returns.
This webinar hosted by Solidaridad and The Impact Facility will discuss how investment into ASM gold mining can be effectively realized, drawing on experience on the ground throughout East Africa and reflecting on leading papers on the issue. A variety of experts from the field of ASM and impact investment will be joining as panelists:
- Susan Egan Keane - Senior Director, Global Strategies, International Program Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC); Global Coordinator, planetGOLD programme
- Winifrida Kanwa - Project Manager Gold Tanzania, Solidaridad
- Ebenezer Arthur - Founder and CEO of Wangara Green Ventures
- David Sturmes - Director Programme and Operations, The Impact Facility
The webinar will be moderated by Laura Gerritsen, Corporate Engagement Gold at Solidaridad.
Join on Thursday, 4 February at 16:00 CET.
This webinar is part of a webinar series, Golden Myths: Digging for the truth about artisanal and small-scale gold mining, designed and facilitated by Solidaridad and The Impact Facility.
