Sustainable Development of Mining in Rwanda
The SDMR program aims to contribute to the economically and environmentally sustainable growth of Rwanda’s mining sector. It will do this by improving the overall business-enabling environment and piloting mining service centres for ASM companies and cooperatives. As technical partner in a consortium led by CARDNO Emerging Markets, Projekt-Consult particularly supports the Rwandan Mining, Petroleum, and Gas Board in managing its existing geological data and in optimizing the current mining license / cadastre management system. In this regard a new centralised national geo-data information management system will be developed that includes a variety of different maps and documents about the Rwandan geology, mining and the mineral resource potential of the country. The system can be accessed via a user-friendly online portal. Additionally, our experts work on the establishment of two ASM mining and processing service centres at district level which provide geological-technical and business administrative support to ASM cooperatives and companies in the surrounding area.
