This video shows the story of women in the Colombian artisanal mining sector and the support they received from the CAPAZ project funded by the European Partnership for Responsible Minerals (EPRM).
The EPRM is a multi-stakeholder partnership aiming to stimulate and increase the demand for responsible minerals. It will encourage sourcing channels for responsible minerals that will enable suppliers to identify and mitigate risks. Furthermore, the EPRM will motivate supply chain actors to support mines and local mining communities to improve their practices to produce responsibly and create access to markets. Through the CAPAZ project the EPRM supported women miners in Colombia to improve their practices and get access to markets.
