The Sustainable Artisanal Mining (SAM) Project started in 2005 and built on Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation’s (SDC) experience in Artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) projects in Ecuador, Bolivia, and Peru. Since 2005, the SAM Project has been contributing to the organization and formalization of Mongolian ASM sector, advocating for environmentally sound mining practices and raising awareness amongst stakeholders on responsible ASM. The SAM Project has been implemented in four Phases, so far, with goals and aims to develop an economically sustainable, environmentally responsible and human rights-based ASM sector in Mongolia benefiting from and contributing to, global best practice regarding ASM. Phase 1 of the SAM Project aimed to develop ASM as a motor for sustainable rural development under an integrated sustainable resource management by the Government of Mongolia. Goal of Phase 2 was to support ASM to create favorable conditions and structures for the ASM sector so that its contributions to socio-economic development based on the careful use of natural resources in selected areas will increase. Phase 3 secured the recognition of ASM as a formal sub-sector contributing to Mongolia’s economic development. Phase 4 of the SAM Project seeks to transform Mongolia into an international knowledge hub for ASM best practice. In Phase 4 of the SAM Project, SDC initiated and funded the development of ASM Knowledge Hub, a web-based platform, opening ceremony for which was held on March 1, 2018. The ASM Knowledge Hub is a web-based interactive platform, which will provide active exchange and distribution of ASM information and connect ASM actors and knowledge contributors in Mongolia as well as with global ASM stakeholders. The platform features latest news and updates in ASM sector and provides information on upcoming events regarding the sector. Visit ASM Knowledge Hub at www.asmhub.mn for various articles, studies, researches and publications produced by ASM stakeholders.
