Prof Luo said this after the launch of the Miners for Diversification Initiative, a Non-Governmental Organization composed of Miners on the Copperbelt and North Western Province.
She has pledged to support the group of miners who have come together to form co-operatives to engage in agricultural activities away from mining .
