Lomé is looking to determine the impacts of mining activities on vulnerable populations

(Togo First) - Togo seeks a consulting firm that will carry out a study assessing the living conditions of people located in the country’s mining areas. This falls under its Projet de Développement et de Gouvernance Minière - PDGM (Project for Development and Mining Governance). 

In depth, Lomé’s goal is to know more about the positive and negative impacts of the mining sector on women and other marginalized groups. The knowledge will enable authorities to make sure that the affected groups benefit more from the mining industry, and mitigate the latter’s negative impacts on them. 

To this end, the survey will assess the corporate social responsibility of mining firms regarding jobs created, access to social services, application of good practices for social inclusion, and mining-induced pollution. 

The consultant that will be selected to take on the task will also submit an action plan and a gender mainstreaming strategy for mining projects developed in Togo.
