Legal ‘Caravans’ in Cabo Delgado: Environmental and Cultural Rights in Cabo Delgado.

Last February the first Legal Caravans of 2019 were held as part of our “Artisanal Mining: Environmental and Cultural Rights in Cabo Delgado” project.

Our main objective is to guarantee the right to health of the population, promoting good artisanal mining practices and environmental protection.

We visited the villages of Mpene in the Nhamanhumbir Administrative Post (Montepuez District) and Minheuene in the Mesa Administrative Post (Ancuabe District). This March we are going to Madjasse village in the Namuno-Sede Administrative Post (Namuno District).

Our main objective is to guarantee the right to health of the population, promoting good artisanal mining practices and environmental protection. During the caravans, we talk with the communities practicing artisanal mining, in an effort to uncover the main problems and difficulties they face in their work and provide them with legal advice.

For example, one of the greatest difficulties faced by artisanal miners a lack of knowledge of the legal procedures for obtaining a mining pass, a document which allows them to practice legally.

We want to guarantee the populations’ right to health, a more sustainable environment and work which is decent and safer.
