UNDP Indonesia

Job Description


“UNDP is the UN's global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in about 170 countries and territories, including Indonesia, working to eradicate poverty while protecting the planet. UNDP supports implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In Indonesia, UNDP works with the Government to integrate SDGs into national plan and policies.”

Worldwide Artisanal and Small-scale Gold Mining (ASGM) is the largest global source of anthropogenic mercury releases into the environment (35%). Mercury can travel long distances, contributing to global mercury pollution and contaminating the world’s ecosystems and fisheries. Exposure to mercury may cause serious health problems. It is a particular threat to the development of the child in utero and early in life. Phasing-out mercury from the ASGM sector is therefore of the utmost importance, however ASGM is a very important source of jobs and livelihoods. ASGM accounts for about 17-20% of the world’s annual gold production with 15 million people directly participating in ASGM activities and another 100 million depending on ASGM for their livelihoods.

Accordingly, with the support of GEF and Minamata Convention, the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (Kementerian Lingkungan Hidup dan Kehutanan or KLHK), Agency for Technology Assessment and Application (Badan Pengkajian dan Penerapan Teknologi or BPPT) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) have been working together to initiate and implement Integrated Sound Management of Mercury in Indonesia’s Artisanal and Small-scale Gold Mining (ISMIA) project.

The project is meant to reduce/eliminate mercury releases from the Indonesian Artisanal and Small-scale Gold Mining (ASGM) sector by (i) Strengthening institutions and the policy/regulatory framework for mercury-free ASGM; (ii) Increasing the access of mining communities to finance to enable the procurement of mercury-free processing technologies; (iii) Increasing the capacity of mining communities for mercury-free ASGM through the provision of technical assistance, technology transfer and support for formalization; and, (iv) raising awareness and disseminating best practices and lessons-learned on mercury phase-out in the ASGM sector.

The project will support 6 ASGM communities in Indonesia to reduce mercury use by at least 5 metric tonnes/year starting in year three (3) of the project, which over the life-span of the project will result in a mercury release reduction of at least 15 tonnes.
