TRANSMAPE. Community Engagement for the Transformation of Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining and Social Learning
The TransMAPE project was the result of coordinated action between the Canadian International Resources and Development Institute (CIRDI) and the Vice Ministry of Mines in Ecuador with its related institutions, and with the support of other academic institutions and community-based ASM organizations. The primary long-term objective of the TransMAPE project was to co-design a training program for miners, communities, regulators and policy-makers to assist in the technical certification of small-scale artisanal mining in Ecuador. CIRDI’s aim was for a competency-based training program that builds the capacity of ASM miners.

The liquidity crisis affecting artisanal gold mining communities around the globe has the potential to turn into a humanitarian crisis. As miners’ ability to sell their gold for cash deteriorates, the growing concern is that miners will be left with gold in their pockets but no food on the table. The most at risk are those rural and isolated communities whose economies are almost entirely dependent on gold, such as Choco, Colombia.
