Project Description

The SD-ASGM project is a five-year project funded by Global Affairs Canada (GAC). It is being executed by the Artisanal Gold Council (AGC) Canada and implemented in Indonesia by Yayasan Emas Artisanal Indonesia in partnership with the Government of Republic of Indonesia (GoI), with the support of GAC.. The direct beneficiaries of the project include men and women gold miners, stakeholders in the responsible gold supply chain, and government actors at national and subnational levels. The project is known locally as Program Emas Rakyat Sejahtera, or “PERS”.

The project aims to improve livelihoods (incomes, health, and 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 North Sulawesi Indonesia. The project improves mining, environmental and social practices for men and women involved in the ASGM, including identifying and implementing behavioral and technical 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.  The Project is built upon three pillars, (1) direct intervention through improved practices and education, including the construction of a mercury-free gold processing facility in three project areas; (2) enhanced institutional and policy support for responsible ASGM activities; and (3) increased trade of responsible artisanal gold from Indonesian ASGM communities via formal supply chains. The third pillar includes establishing collaborative mechanisms with other relevant initiatives that promote 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.
