heritage are some of the issues affecting these communities. This aligns with the United
Nations Sustainable Developmental Goal 3 (Good Health and Well-Being), Goal 6 (Clean
Water and Sanitation, Goal 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), Goal 14 (Life below
Water), and Goal 15 (Life on Land). The need for Host Communities to have a better

freedom that has all been negatively affected by mining/quarrying activities, prompted the
need for this study. This report is part of a larger project on the MacArthur Foundation sponsored project that was commissioned by the Centre for Transparency and Advocacy
