Protecting Communities and the Environment Near Mining Operations in the Democratic Republic of Congo

Project summary

DRC, in the heart of Africa, is rich in natural resources but has many problems with mining companies that flaunt human rights and pollute and devastate the environment. The mining industry’s failure to take precautionary measures is the root of much abuse faced by residents. CODED proposes to strengthen the rule of law and protect communities and the environment by empowering community leaders to challenge human rights violations, defend the environment, and save lives.
