Strategic Plan on Management of Mercury in Artisanal and Small Scale Gold Mining in Combodia 2012-2016

The Strategic Plan on Management of Mercury  in Artisanal and Small Scale Gold Mining (SPASGM) was prepared by the Department of Environmental Pollution Control (DEPC), the Ministry of Environment (MOE), with support from the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP). This strategic plan was developed in response to various concerns on safe use and sound management regarding intentional mercury use in Artisanal and Small Scale Gold Mining (ASGM).  This SPASGM is also developed and implemented to support existing legal frameworks, national strategies, action plans and many other relevant technical papers. Technical support for this development was administered by the UNEP Chemicals Branch through the Artisanal and Small Scale Gold Mining (ASGM) Project with in-kind contributions from the Royal Government of Cambodia. 

This Strategic Plan is published in Khmer and English versions by the Department of Environmental Pollution Control (DEPC), the Ministry of Environment (MOE) of  the Royal Government of Cambodia. This is to provide a practical framework on sound management of chemicals, including mercury and mercury containing wastes in Cambodia, with full participation from all levels of Government and civil societies in implementing it.
