Pact Zimbabwe has piloted trainings to enhance artisanal and small-scale gold miners’ skills in three districts: Gwanda, Kwekwe and Shurugwi. Trainings have covered topics which include; safety and environment management, mining legislation, efficient mining techniques, mercury abatement, child labour, gender equality & mining and financial literacy.

MIT D-Lab and Alliance for Responsible Mining English
The MIT D-Lab Inclusive Economies program and the Alliance for Responsible Mining in Colombia, joined together to launch a two-year program addressing gender-based violence affecting women engaged in artisanal and small-scale gold mining in the Antioquia region of Colombia.
The project uses an innovative movement-building approach to foster women miners’ associations and homegrown advocacy to address social and economic gender-based violence in mining communities in Andes, Zaragoza, Nechí, and El Bagre in Antioquia, Colombia.
The 2020 Report uses the Sustainable Development Goal 8 (SDG8): “promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all” as the framework for analyzing artisanal and small-scale mining's contributions to global development.
