Conducting a substantial number of well targeted research studies is useful. Research is often seen as peripheral to projects or serving to measure progress. The studies supported by this project approach the subject of child labor in the cobalt mining value chain from different angles and, when linked together, can inform the ways forward. They provide a good basis for understanding the local realities, mapping actors, and developing strategies, suitable advocacy and communications methods. Additional research in related subjects would still be useful, while some research will need to be updated on a regular basis. In particular, this applies in the case of mapping of mining locations and actors working on the elimination of child labor in the cobalt supply chain.
