By addressing the legacy of abandoned diamond mines, the Peace Diamonds Restoration Initiative offers an opportunity to close the circle and give back to impacted communities.
Degraded, post-mined lands and pits are a development opportunity. Alongside those who know their lands best, we transform these sites from health and safety hazards to hubs for farming, agricultural training, and other forms of communal gathering. Through collaboration and shared learning with locals, the Peace Diamonds Restoration Initiative delivers a tailor-made solution that draws on the unique strengths and needs of each site and its surrounding community.
