"To facilitate and coordinate the implementation of applied geoscience programmes in East and Southeast Asia in order to contribute to economic development and an improved quality of life within the region."
CCOP Workshop on the future of ASM and Local Communities
4 March 2019, Koh Samui, Thailand

OBJECTIVE

This workshop will review the progress of CASM-Asia and discuss new technological challenges such as landscape rehabilitation as well as new commercial instruments which enable the local communities to achieve the endogenous development.

RATIONALE

Artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) has many dimensions, including science, technology, national/local economy, social order, community development and human security. Funded by the World Bank CCOP's "CASM-Asia Project" already covered many subjects such as Goal Oriented Project Planning, psychological approach and risk management of mercury.

However some important subjects still remain untouched and thus this workshop will explore new methods to expand the opportunity of the ASM stakeholders. On March 4, 2019, CCOP will provide a full-day learning and discussion event. After the country paper presentations we will focus on two themes: (1) how local community can manage landscape around ASM; and (2) how the ASM subsector can be linked to the social business like "responsible jewelry".

Two Japanese experts will be dispatched from the Geological Survey of Japan, AIST and from Daiichi Institute of Technology as well as local specialists in Thailand to spur the discussion. Under the auspices of Japanese Society of Geo-pollution Science, Medical Geology and Urban Geology, selected papers will be published in the academic journal "Geo-pollution Science, Medical Geology and Urban Geology".
