The Frugal Rehabilitation Methodology for Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining in Mongolia: An Innovative Approach to Formalization and Environmental Governance with Potential for International Adaptation through the BEST-ASM Initiative. In Extracting Innovations (1st ed., pp. 25). CRC Press.

Andrew Cooke, CEO of RESOLVE, co-authored this chapter on innovative environmental management in artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM). The Frugal Rehabilitation Methodology (FRM) and the Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services Transformative ASM (“BEST-ASM”) initiatives aim to institutionalise sustainable practices in the ASM sector. This chapter details the development and implementation of FRM in Mongolia and explores the potential for international adaptation of these methodologies to improve environmental governance at ASM sites globally. Despite Mongolia‚Äôs 2006 Minerals Law, there remains a need for legal recognition and formalisation of ASM practices.
