Enhancing socio-technical integration of remediation efforts in artisanal and small-scale gold mining communities
Artisanal and small-scale gold mining represents the largest source of anthropogenic mercury contamination in the world, creating long-term exposure risks to miners and communities in which these operations exist. Eliminating these health and environmental risks requires the implementation of remediation projects in coordination with local communities. Yet, current remediation frameworks lack thorough guidance on integrating local knowledge with technical data, and projects therefore emphasize technical forms of knowledge over local knowledge. This research bridges this gap by first analyzing ...
