Este estudio nos ha permitido tener una visión detallada de la dimensión regional del problema, siendo uno de los hallazgos más relevantes la importante brecha de información oficial que limita el alcance y efectividad de las políticas de Estado para hacer frente a la minería ilegal e informal. A esta realidad se suma la heterogeneidad de criterios entre cada país para definir y medir los problemas de la ilegalidad e informalidad en minería.

83% of the world’s mining workforce relies on Artisanal and Small Scale mines for their livelihood. That comes to roughly 40.5 million people. These people were vulnerable before COVID-19 and even more so now. As gold prices rise, so does exploitation and violence for these miners.
Alliance for Responsible Mining English
Managing the risk of forced labor in ASM is complex. Strategies to tackle it must address the double objective of eradicating forced labor and making sure that innocent people who rely on Artisanal and Small-scale Mining for their livelihoods are not excluded from mineral supply chains. ASM is a poverty-alleviating activity that directly and indirectly employs hundreds of millions of people around the world; excluding ASM from mineral supply chains could have a terrible impact on their livelihoods. The aim of this toolkit is to provide a handson approach that will help organizations, companies and government institutions to cooperate with artisanal miners rather than exclude them.
