Sand and gravel mining is a direct and obvious cause of environmental degradation (Kondolf, et al., 2008). The demand for gravel is rising because its importance and role in construction is indispensible. Therefore, the extraction of the two important construction aggregates is bound to have considerable ramifications on the environs of their occurrence. Rivers and their floodplains are an economical source of sand and gravel

6 things you need to know about sand mining

So-called sand mafias – illegal and often violent sand miners – are groups that illegally dredge sand from prohibited areas. Indifferent to environmental regulations, their actions have caused untold environmental damage, with the UNEP warning that their activities are removing natural flood protections, exacerbating pressures on shorelines and riverbeds already threatened by climate change.
