The Mining Sector in Central African Republic with a focus on Information Collection and Management Systems and Procedures

The policy review’s purpose is twofold: 1) to provide a concise background summary of mining policy history and current issues as a basis for workshop discussions; and 2) to facilitate identification by workshop participants in CAR of constraints and opportunities to improve alluvial diamond chain-of-custody information availability and management by establishing a reliable information system. The ultimate goal of the sessions focusing on mining policy in CAR was to contribute to achievement of result 1 identified in the PRADD pilot project design document: A system for reliable production and export information for diamonds exists at pilot sites.
