We are pleased to invite you to attend and disseminate the UNDP side event on mercury reduction and elimination in Artisanal Small-scale Gold Mining, co-sponsored with the COP host country Indonesia, about a very successful project of UNDP in Indonesia as part of the PLanetGOLD programme. Artisanal Small-Scale Gold Mining has a serious environmental impact globally due to the use and uncontrolled emission of mercury.
