Алтны бичил уурхайд хэрэглэгддэг химийн бодисын хор хөнөөл: Мөнгөн ус, цианид болон цахиур агуулсан тоосны хүний эрүүл мэнд, байгаль орчинд үзүүлэх нөлөөлөл
Artisanal Gold Council Mongolian
Энэхүү гарын авлагад мөнгөн ус, цианид, цахиур агуулсан тоосонцрын хүний эрүүл мэнд, байгаль орчинд үзүүлэх нөлөөг хураангуйлан танилцуулсан болно. Химийн хор хөнөөл нь бичил уурхайчид төдийгүй тэдний орон нутагт эрсдэл учруулж байдаг. Мөнгөн ус болон цианид аль аль нь хүний эрүүл мэндэд асар хортой. Гэвч зөвхөн мөнгөн ус байгаль орчинд задралгүй оршиж, хол зайд тархдаг онцлогтой. Үндсэн уурхайд ордод маш нарийн цахиурт тоосонцорт өртөх явдал түгээмэл боловч түүнээс урьдчилан сэргийлэх боломжтой.
MIT D-Lab and Alliance for Responsible Mining English
The MIT D-Lab Inclusive Economies program and the Alliance for Responsible Mining in Colombia, joined together to launch a two-year program addressing gender-based violence affecting women engaged in artisanal and small-scale gold mining in the Antioquia region of Colombia.
The project uses an innovative movement-building approach to foster women miners’ associations and homegrown advocacy to address social and economic gender-based violence in mining communities in Andes, Zaragoza, Nechí, and El Bagre in Antioquia, Colombia.
Step-by-step guide for developing a public health strategy for artisanal and small-scale gold mining in the context of the Minamata Convention on Mercury
World Health Organization English
Researchers or other assessors should use this guide to help ministries of health develop a public health strategy as part of the ASGM National Action Plan. The evidence collected will clarify key issues to consider for the public health strategy. The approach for collecting and using the evidence was developed by WHO and the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute and pilot-tested in three countries – Ghana, Mozambique and Nigeria – between 2017 and 2019.
Also available in Arabic, French, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
The 2020 Report uses the Sustainable Development Goal 8 (SDG8): “promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all” as the framework for analyzing artisanal and small-scale mining's contributions to global development.
