Formatted abstract
This project was aimed at increasing our understanding of governance dynamics that can limit or foster multi-stakeholder collaboration for sustainable human capital capacitybuilding in mining regions in developing countries. This research also addressed mining development issues in Colombia.  

The fieldwork for this project, funded by IM4DC, focused on two case studies in Colombia: Antioquia and Risaralda. The selected mining regions are actively engaged with the notion of human capital capacity building, but the results so far are mixed. Based on the case study as a methodological approach, this research implied the use of face-toface and group interviews with stakeholders at the national, state and local levels. A total of 50 stakeholders were interviewed in both case study areas.

Group interviews were also conducted with key civil organisation leaders and community members participating in capacity-building initiatives in both case study areas. Data collected will be applied to map and explore the potential of existing capacity building initiatives and their implications for community members. Similarly, data collected from focus group interviews will help us evaluate the roles of stakeholders and forms of collaboration (and the possibility of tension) for forging sustainable livelihoods in the case study areas. Fieldwork participants and other university and government representatives
expressed their interest in establishing potential alliances with the IM4DC programme and the Sustainable Minerals Institute and these are listed in the report.
