The artisanal and small-scale diamond mining (ASDM) industry accounts for roughly 20% of the total global diamond production. As more and more large-scale diamond mines are closing, ASDM will play an important role in the diamond industry in the very near future.
What do you think of when it comes to artisanal diamond mining and the workers who mine the diamonds?
Artisanal diamond miners in Africa live in isolated societies from the rest of the world because they do not have access to the internet and they believe in traditional, sometimes superstition -based information, which is probably beyond your imagination.
At this informative event, Caelen Burand, a diamond mining specialist, and Chie Murakami, the founder of the NGO Diamonds for Peace, will discuss the reality, challenges, and the way forward for artisanal diamond mining in Liberia where Diamonds for Peace is active in several diamond mining related projects.
Attendance to this event is free but the seats are limited.
