    Abstract:

    Across Africa, a wave of policy reforms is underway with the primary objective of increasing the development benefits from mineral wealth. To achieve this end, a diverse range of policy, legal and institutional models has been introduced in different African nations. These range from competitive bidding versus first-come first-serve licencing to mandated versus market driven value addition to efforts to formalize artisanal supply chains versus a reversion to policies to eradicate artisanal mining to a resurgence of state mining companies in some jurisdictions. Drawing on evidence from Mozambique, Kenya, Uganda, Sierra Leone, Zimbabwe and other nations, this presentation explores the implications of different trends on the promotion of sustainable development across the spectrum of artisanal, small, medium and large scale mining.
