In order to strengthen the governance of the Mining Sector and increase its contribution to the national economy, the Minister of Mining has initiated, through the PROMINES project, an Evaluation of Skills, Workflow and Information Flow in the context of the Mining Sector reform in the DRC. Hence, C2D and its local partner have been assigned the functioning of the Mining administration, including the Assistance and Supervision Unit of Small Scale Mining (Production Minière à Petite Échelle, SAESSCAM) and of the Technical Coordination and Mining Planning Unit (Cellule Technique de Coordination et de Planification Minière, CTCPM). The key activities being conducted are the following:
• Identify, within the Ministry of Mining, the workflows and information flows;
• Evaluate the available skill sets;
• Define the profiles and positions that are likely to increase its efficiency;
• Identify training needs.
