The socio-economic impact of mining in the Kayes region of Mali

This report assesses the impact of mining companies’ community investments on local populations, as well as the impact of mining operations on local socio-economic development and conflicts in Mali – specifically in the Kayes region.

The research found that, whereas there has been improvement in the amount of wages paid to those engaged in the mining industry, including locals, the jobs and community projects on offer have yet to benefit all the villages affected by mining operations. (Français)
