The Great Lakes countries are well endowed with natural resources and have one of the richest concentrations of precious minerals and metals on earth. However, the exploitation and trade of minerals are too frequently conducted illegally. In response to this, diverse regional and international efforts to break the link between smuggling and illicit exploitation of natural resources.
