Adam Rolfe is a Manager of the Mineral Sector Development division at Levin Sources. He is a project manager, researcher and development practitioner with more than six years’ experience delivering solutions for civil society, development agencies, governments and clients in the private sector.
Adam provides strategic direction on projects that focus on the developmental potential of the artisanal and small-scale mining sector to improve the livelihoods, working conditions and resilience of raw materials producers and communities affected by mining. By incorporating both field and desk-based research methods to determine the drivers for mining, Adam’s work is both sensitive to community issues and commercially astute.
Since joining Levin Sources, Adam has worked on mineral sector reform and artisanal and small-scale mining formalisation; public policy; technical training programmes for artisanal miners and producer community needs assessments. He was instrumental in the design of the International Conference of the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR) Mineral Tracking Database; the development and implementation of the ICGLR Third Party Audits process; a National Strategy and Action Plan for ‘Services d’assistance et e’encadrement du small scale mining’ (SAESSCAM) in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and baseline studies of Guinea’s gold and diamond artisanal and small-scale mining sectors.
Before joining Levin Sources, Adam worked as a teacher in France, where he taught English and politics. He holds a MSc in Human Rights from the London School of Economics and a First Class Honours in History and Politics from Queen Mary, University of London.
Adam works in English and French. He is based at Levin Sources, Cambridge.
