ISFEREA — Scientific and technical support to the Kimberley process (diamond trade)

Website URL: http://isferea.jrc.ec.europa.eu/Activities/ProjectPortfolio/Pages/Kimberley.aspx

Website Description: The Kimberley Process (KP) is a joint government, diamond industry and NGOs scheme to reduce trade in conflict diamonds. The Commission is responsible for ensuring optimal implementation of the certification scheme throughout the European Community (EC). The EC, represented by DG RELEX, assumed the chair of the KP in 2007, and holds the chair of the Working Group on Monitoring. We provide scientific and technical support to DG RELEX and the KP by monitoring illegal mining activities on the basis of satellite remote sensing. The KP also relies on trade statistics analysis communicated by its members. In collaboration with SITAFS, we provide support to DG RELEX for production and trade statistics analysis, as well as other open source information analysis for selected countries.
