Burkina Faso

Titre : Scalable Trade in Artisanal Gold (Burkina Faso)

Pays : Burkina Faso

Dates : Start date : 1 January 2021 // End date : 31 December 2023

Identification projet : NL-KVK-27378529-EPRM20S19

Programme : European Partnership for Responsible Minerals (EPRM)

Traditional Burkinabe gold traders operate informally and are therefore disconnected from responsible markets. They currently lack the capacity and incentives to implement international standards leaving miners and their communities vulnerable, impoverished and ineffective at capturing the value and development opportunity of their mineral wealth. Meanwhile, despite recognizing the importance of sourcing gold from artisanal miners to deliver needed resources for community development, refiners and downstream companies remain challenged to identify and validate legitimate artisanal gold sources, largely due to compliance requirements and reputational risks that are difficult to navigate. This risks further marginalization of artisanal producers by European and other formal markets.
