About the Project
Sustainable Development of the Artisanal Small-scale Gold Mining (ASGM) in Indonesia is a 5-year project (2015-2019) that AGC is implementing for Global Affairs Canada in partnership with Indonesian NGOs.
The project aims to improve incomes, health, and the environment of the vulnerable and marginalized men and women dependent on the artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM) economy in proposed target areas in Central Kalimantan and other provinces in Indonesia. The project improves mining, environmental and social practices for men and women involved in the ASGM, including identifying alternatives to mercury use. The project also supports targeted provincial governments to better collaborate with the formal extractive sector and supports the formalization of ASGM activities through legal trade of responsible artisanal gold and value-added products in domestic and international markets. Activities include: (1) provide training on better practices for men and women miners; (2) provide training to targeted government and civil society groups on ASGM regulation and management; and (3) establish collaborative mechanisms with other relevant initiatives promoting responsible gold and diversification of the ASGM economy. This initiative supports the Government of Indonesia’s implementation of the Minamata Convention on mercury, which both Canada and Indonesia signed in 2013.
