GEM STONE MINING AND SUPPLY CHAIN
Occupational safety and health of miners, cutters, polishers and jewellery makers are foremost concerns along the supply chain in the sector. In addition, environmental impact, gender empowerment, social development remain major concerns to ensure the sector plays a constructive role from mines to markets. The rise of synthetic stones is also going to add further complexity to monitoring these indicators in comparative perspective. GemHub is specially seeking input to ensure we are covering all these complexities of the supply chain and identifying innovations as well as highlighting community concerns.
