Our goal is to create a policy environment that supports more secure, dignified livelihoods for miners, that helps to empower them, that promotes collaboration within the sector, and that addresses other social and environmental challenges. The programme's core components will be country learning groups; multi-stakeholder dialogues on contentious issues; an online ASM resource centre and virtual network; and global policy engagement and communications.
