Policy Brief on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) of Gold Mining Industry in Cambodia

Cambodia has mandated legal requirements on relevant ESG for instance labor, health and safety, environmental protection, impact assessment, human rights, child rights, gender and private corporate governance. The study used a more qualitative approach for collecting data and information to formulate and analyze study findings from the six gold mining companies in the three provinces. The study was conducted in a participatory manner, ensuring the participation and involvement of key stakeholders in the different approaches of the study. The findings, discussions, conclusions and recommendations are based on in-depth interviews with investment personnel, provincial in-charged departments, International/Non-Governmental Organizations (I/NGOs), semi-structured interviews with gold mining employees and field observations performed during the field data collection to Preah Vihear, Mondulkiri and Ratanakiri provinces in September 2022.
