Explore IPIS’ web map of the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) with a guided narrative

In its new story map, IPIS presents data gathered on eastern DRC’s artisanal mining sector and highlights key information from its reports investigating the interactions between natural resources and conflict dynamics in the region.

Data was gathered on around 2,700 mining sites, and the principal messages of the research are conveyed in a succinct, digestible format. These include items about types of minerals mined, destinations, levels of interference from armed and non-armed actors, the use of roadblocks to extort supply chains, and the efficacy of responsible sourcing.
