Abstract

There is a general concern in the scholarly literature pertaining to sustainable resource governance and the implications for industries such as mining. Yet there are many unanswered questions in this area, and the research reported in this chapter increases our understanding in this regard. Our investigation has shown there are essential capacity-building areas to trace a roadmap for sustainable resource governance in small-scale mining (herein SSM). Improving identified areas seems from this research to be the most effective way to enhance the ability of small-scale miners and stakeholders to cope with pressing sustainability issues over time. This chapter presents a capacity-building roadmap for SSM and pays attention to the nature and importance of these areas to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal 9 (herein SDG), Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure. What makes this research essential is its focus on the extent to which these areas are valuable for stakeholders involved in the SSM industry. It does this through a case study in Bolivia. This research is based on a qualitative strategy for data collection and case study methodology.
