The ACP-EU Development Minerals Programme is a capacity building programme that aims to build the profile and improve the management of Development Minerals. The programme is an initiative of the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS), financed by the European Union and UNDP, and implemented by UNDP.
The mining of development minerals has important implications for sustainable development. Often referred to as Low Value Minerals and Materials (LVMM) due to their low price as a function of their weight, and their relatively low value to international commodity markets, Development Minerals provide crucial inputs for domestic economic development (infrastructure, manufacturing, construction and agriculture to name a few) and have the potential to be high value in terms of domestic development.
The programme is being implemented in 10 countries namely: Cameroon, Fiji, Guinea (Conakry), Jamaica, Uganda, Zambia, Suriname, Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania and Burkina Faso. Training and support is be provided to artisanal and small-scale miners, mineral processing enterprises and communities on: 1) formalizing artisanal and small-scale mining operations and improving the business environment; 2) increasing and stabilizing incomes of artisanal and small-scale mining enterprises; 3) addressing environmental and social impacts; 4) supporting women-owned and -run artisanal and small-scale enterprises; 5) facilitating knowledge exchanges between African, Caribbean and Pacific countries.
The successful candidate will be part of a team working with four different continents and in diverse development settings.
