|Overview : |
The purpose of this study is to assess the prerequisites for the structural transformation of the mining sector in line with the Economic Transformation Pillar of the National Strategy for Transformation 2018-2024 (NST1) and the African Mining Vision (AMV). The study will therefore deliver a comprehensive analysis of the present situation in the sector, focusing in those areas of major interest highlighted by the NST1 and the AMV as well as providing not only up to date information to all the actors involved, but also helping to rationalize and mainstream the efforts to achieve the strategic objectives as laid down by GoR.
The study will be broadly guided by UNDP’s approach to the mining sector which shows its link to 11 out of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals as well as by the joint UNDP-MINECOFIN concept note Within this framework, the study will aim to cover the knowledge gaps including enabling environment -appropriate fiscal regime and access to finance, skills gaps. The study will cover Tin, Tantalum and Tungsten (3-Ts) as well as non-3-T minerals such as industrial minerals, construction materials and dimension stones.
