This toolkit aims to strengthen capacity of citizens and local authorities on basic mining laws, by exploring the cases of Wassa East District and Prestea Huni-Valley Municipality. The toolkit is a resource document aimed at enhancing the knowledge of local authorities and citizens on basic mining laws and regulations in Ghana. It seeks to acquaint operators in the mining industry about the rules of the game. Of particular interest is how citizens’ knowledge of the basic mining laws will lead to the maximization of benefits while minimizing the negative effects and common pitfalls associated with the extractive mining sector. Additional materials have been developed out of the toolkit that include an abridged simplified pictorial version and posters.
