dc.description.abstract In Zimbabwe, artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) is predominantly in gold mining and has contributed significantly towards mineral output and a source of livelihood for many communities. It is crucial for countries having some of its citizens relying on ASM, to formally recognize this sector and work towards making ASM sustainable. In Zimbabwe, several ideas for formalizing ASM have been implemented but the assumed benefits have not yet been fully realised. This paper argues that for formalization to make an impact, an integrated approach founded on understanding stakeholder needs, the demographics of the ASM, provision of appropriate training and a structured coordination of the sector would increase the sustainability of formalization programmes. These programmes would have to be supported by strong political will and robust, capacitated implementing institutions. Built on these arguments, a formalization roadmap is proposed to ensure the ASM sector brings its anticipated benefits to all stakeholders. en_US
