This issue highlights fieldwork conducted at project sites as the GMP moves toward completing its implementation objectives. The Project Coordination Unit is working closely with Assistant Country Focal Points and many local implementation partners to introduce Technical Demonstration Units, launch mercury awareness campaigns, and return the results of health assessments to people in communities. In addition, an expanded policy group is collaborating with national experts to draft and revise regulatory reforms dealing with mercury use, while looking at trade, regional policy frameworks, community development, and economic policy.

This issue highlights the strategy for implementation of the demonstration units as well as the situation of the artisanal miners in Lao PDR. The Project Coordination Unit (PCU) and the Governmental counterparts recognize that education is the key for effective measures in reducing mercury emissions in developing countries. Hands-on training will be provided to miners and other stakeholders. The training units proposed by GMP go after miners and not vice-versa. The rampant use of mercury as a result of the high gold price must be combated at the source.

Small-scale or Artisanal gold mining is an essential activity in many developing countries as it provides an important source of livelihood, particularly in rural regions where economic alternatives are critically limited. Artisanal mining encompasses small, medium, informal, legal and illegal miners who use rudimentary processes to extract more than 30 different mineral substances worldwide.
