Liberia: Unleashing the power of citizen participation in mining governance

This new story by UNDP Liberia focuses on how ASM miners and communities impacted by mining near the Gola Forest National Park joined forces to establish the region's first participatory environmental monitoring committee, enabling community-based monitoring of land degradation in abandoned mining sites and rehabilitating such sites by planting native and fructiferous trees.

The committee also serves as a platform for dialogue with provincial and central government and civil society organisations to address mounting environmental challenges associated with the global demand for critical transition minerals.
