Zambia: Training Trainers for Country-Wide Impact

 


Africa/Zambia


 

 

 

Two Training of Trainers (ToT) Workshops on Mine and Quarry Management, Environment, Occupational Health and Safety and Community Health, Labor and Human Rights took place in Zambia in October. Kitwe and Lusaka played host to these training workshops.

In total, 73 persons drawn from small scale mine operators, local government officials, representatives from the Ministry of Mines and Minerals Development, community leaders and civil society organizations took part in this country level training. The training increased technical knowledge of operating standards, technologies, techniques and practices for improved mine and quarry management and facilitated knowledge exchange on best practices in environment, health and safety standards.

The aim of the ToT workshops is to enhance technical knowledge of key participants that will then roll out the training to local small scale miners in their respective areas. The Programme therefore is developing a strong network of competent instructors who are simultaneously replicating and sharing the knowledge acquired during these training workshops through-out the country.

ACP-EU Development Minerals Programme

‘Development Minerals’ are minerals and materials that are mined, processed, manufactured and used domestically in industries such as construction, manufacturing, and agriculture.

Development Minerals are economically important close to the location where the commodity is mined. They include industrial minerals, construction materials, dimension stones and semi-precious stones.

    The African Union Commission has called member states to prioritize 'Development Minerals' as part of Africa's industrialization agenda. Find out more about our twenty-eight participating countries and four focus countries in Africa.

Uganda

East Africa

Population growth is creating a huge demand for housing and infrastructure, as well as the Development Minerals needed for the construction industry.

Guinea

West Africa

Guinea-Conakry is one of the world's top bauxite producers, but it also has the potential to realise opportunities from the mining of Development Minerals.

Zambia

Southern Africa

Zambia is paving more than 2000 km of roads with locally sourced pavers and cobblestones and in the process is creating tens of thousands of jobs.

Cameroon

Central Africa

The Government of Cameroon requires contracting authorities to incorporate local materials in the construction of public buildings.

Caribbean

Ancient coral, long ago compressed into limestone under the weight of mud, sand and yet more coral, accounts for 65% of the Jamaican island by weight, and 85% of its surface coverage.

Fiji
