Strategies against the threats from illegal gold mining

There are already a lot of data available on the extent of gold mining in the Guianas and its impacts on the environment and the local communities. RENFORESAP’s objective is to do an overview of the strategies and environmental rules of each country concerning gold mining in and around Protected Areas, to identify how management plans of protected areas deal with these stakes and to ponder on how to involve local communities in preventing the impacts of illegal gold mining on their livelihoods.

The added value of the project could be to suggest strategic directions for the Guianas.
