In 2014, the Enough Project released a report on war lordism and the mines of the Congo. The report indicated that due to the economic pressure of a provision of the United States Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Act, which required any company that might be using "conflict minerals" to register with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and publish their supply chain, control over the mines had passed out of the hands of the warlords and local militias.[6] In 2015, the Enough Project launched The Sentry, a project designed to gather evidence and analyze the financing and operation of African conflicts.[7]
