Assessment of miner’s revenue & basic needs study

In Eastern DR Congo, miners’ families have a difficult time to make ends meet even though artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) is among the best income sources available to many. In an in-depth analysis of incomes and revenues of artisanal and small scale mining, IPIS and Levin Sources compare the income of miners and basic needs expenditures, to provide a better and nuanced understanding of why ASM communities seem to remain extremely poor and mineral wealth does not seem to translate into improved local development.
