Established in 2017, Shared Resources works to strengthen and support local, participatory, and networked governance structures to favor peacebuilding in artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM) communities in Colombia.
For this it:
- Works along with the community through context-sensitive, locally-informed needs assessments aimed at solving practical problems.
- Coordinates community-specific technical training around mining and territorial management, and legal frameworks.
- Facilitates the development of mining governance councils that support unity and territorial governance.
- Facilitates the communication and engagement between communities, key stakeholders in mining, as well as regulatory and enforcement institutions.
