To understand the impacts of the pilot project better, in mid 2019 Trafigura commissioned an independent analysis. Interviews and focus group discussions were conducted with miners and key informants among participating stakeholders. A quantitative survey was also administered to 319 artisanal miners from this group, and a Comparator Group comprising 110 artisanal miners from an informal ASM site several hour’s drive from Mutoshi. This case study provides a summary of these findings from the full research report (Johansson de Silva, Strauss, Morisho, 2019) to highlight the positive impacts on SDG8 in two key areas: decent work through increased
productivity, and health and safety
