On 11th June 2015, PDA facilitated a roundtable discussion on a report released by Human Rights Watch (HRW) on the eve of World Day Against Child Labor, June 12, regarding child work in Ghana's mining sector.
As international gold refiners who use gold from Ghana may be benefitting from hazardous child labor in unlicensed mines, HRW asked for refiners to take immediate steps to eliminate child labor in their supply chains in their report of 82 pages.
The roundtable discussion gathered stakeholders from government, public and private sectors, as well as NGOs to debate the findings and recommendations of the report as well as possible future actions to address child labour in the gold mining sector. For the full report, for which PDA had supported HRW in the data collection, please see under

PDA co-facilitated a national ‘sense making’ workshop as part of the impact evaluation of the Root and Tuber Improvement and Marketing Programme (RTIMP) which used the PIALA methodology (see Research, Evaluation and Assessment Past Work section for details). The national sense-making workshop engaged local and national programme stakeholders in the process of interpreting the evidence that emerged from 2 months of field research in 25 districts in 8 regions across the country.
