Property Rights and Artisanal Diamond Development (PRADD) Projet Étude Comparative : Regimes Juridiques et Fiscaux pour L’Exploitation Miniere Artisanale de Diamants

This Comparative Study assesses how legalization of artisanal diamond miners can be promoted through reduced costs of licensing, royalties, taxes, and fees. Detailed case studies from diamond producing countries—Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guyana, Tanzania, and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)—and general experiences from several other ASM countries provide interesting insights (French version).
