Chief of Party Summary The Chief of Party (COP) is responsible for the overall coordination and management of an anticipated multi-year program that will promote sustainable economic development in Eastern DRC and other mineral-rich provinces through strategic support to the Artisanal- and Small-scale Mining (ASM) sector.

• Better governance and management of the ASM sector; • Improved operating environment for artisanal miners; • Livelihood diversification in ASM areas; • An improved revenue base for the government from the mining sector; and • Clear policies and measures to address the most important negative externalities of the ASM sector in DRC, in particular child labor, the precarious role of women, environmental degradation, and the spread of infectious diseases (esp. HIV/AIDS).
