Developing a national action plan to reduce, and where feasible, eliminate mercury use in artisanal and small-scale gold mining
The document is aimed at policy maker and provides guidance on how to implement the Minamata Convention on Mercury in the artisanal and small scale gold mining sector. This mainly covers how to develop a national action plan, plan and implement measures and involve the relevant stakeholders. The document does not explicitly address work place related exposure and prevention measures.
Although the use of this guidance is not a requirement under the Minamata Convention, it is intended to assist countries with the preparation of their NAPs.
