Mercury in Indonesia: Reducing Supply and Availability
A COLLABORATIVE PROJECT TO REDUCE MERCURY
BRI and Nexus3, in collaboration with other non-governmental organizations, is leading this three-year project, the purpose of which is to support the Government of Indonesia in restricting mercury supplies, especially for the artisanal small-scale gold mining (ASGM) sector.
Project efforts include four major components:
(1) Legal/regulatory/policy actions to restrict mercury supplies produced by mining and mercury by-products from other activities; (2) Develop and implement a plan to reduce the trade in illegal import/export of mercury; (3) Develop and implement a plan to secure store mercury, mercury by-products, and mercury waste; and (4) Monitor mercury to the magnitude of human and ecological health impacts and prioritize generation and site selection of Local Action Plans to ultimately track project effectiveness.
