The Environmental and Human Rights in Mining Communities project highlights the effects of mining on communities in Shurugwi District by artisanal, small scale and large scale companies. It focuses on three important aspects namely; (i) failure by mining concerns to implement their corporate social responsibility (ii) environmental degradation and (iii) the distress and human rights violations caused to communities of place. It also outlines the findings of research undertaken by the Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission’s Environmental Thematic Working Group (ETWG) in collaboration with public, private institutions and the affected communities . Finally, it makes recommendations to Parliament, relevant government ministries and the private sector in order to influence and secure appropriate redress and effective measures for the preservation of the environment for the present and future generations.
