This chapter focuses on the challenges in quantifying the local and regional contributions of mining sector development across time and space. One of several ways to analyze drivers of inclusive approach is to analyze artisanal and small-scale mining sector case studies. Quantitative methods can be used for benchmarking local performance of mining companies and supply chain actors. National systems of innovation, skills development, production, employment, and income linkages could lead to overcoming current limiting factors to linkages development. Increases in mining sector output is expected to stimulate other sectors of local and regional economies.
