The guidance includes steps on how to ensure effective, inclusive strategy development and implementation, as well as effective governance of the process overall. It encourages the user to focus on the local context, and to continually think about the most practical and feasible ways for a government to achieve its ASM-related sustainable development objectives.

The training is attended by 15 practitioners from diverse backgrounds and expertise relating to  Artisanal and Small Scale Mining.The trainees from Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia,Rwanda,Zambia and South Africa were carefully selected from the previous contribution to the ASM sector development .The ASM practitioners will then be accredited as IGF qualified trainers, recommended  to assist and build capacities of governments, CSOs and the private sector in Africa with the implementation of the IGF Guidance for Governments: Managing ASM.
