Levin Sources and Sudca Development Consultants (Sudca) developed this
training manual for the JSDF Project and the Government of Ethiopia’s Ministry of Mines, Petroleum, and Natural Gas (MOMPNG). It was financed by the World Bank-administered JSDF grant for support to improve the economic, social, and environmental sustainability of artisanal miners, with a particular emphasis on empowerment of women.
The manual prioritises:
• Adult learning techniques that maximise participation and learning-by-doing; and
• A Knowledge, Skills and Attitudes (K-S-A) approach to build capacity in technical content while empowering participants by increasing their Knowledge and Skills to create gender-responsive trainers with the attitudes necessary to support future actions.
The manual is intended for use by a variety of audiences to guide and supplement their work, whether directly or indirectly related to artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM). A non-exhaustive list of the potential users is as follows:
• The ASM Department of the MoMPNG
• MoMPNG Directorates working closely with the ASM, Environment & Community Development, Gender, Artisanal Mining Production and Marketing, Public Relations and Communications Directorates
• Regional Mining Bureaus
• Local Woreda and Kabele Officers (Gender, Mining, Environment)
• Artisanal and Small-scale Mining Cooperatives / Women’s Economic Strengthening Groups
• Artisanal and Small-scale Communities
