Artisanal and Small Scale Gold Mining And Mercury Management – Innovation Programme

Anthropogenic emissions of mercury to the atmosphere in 2015 were estimated at 2,220 tonnes, approximately 20 percent higher than 2010, according to UN Environment’s Global Mercury Assessment 2018. The report also estimated that almost 38 percent of the global total of emissions was associated with artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM), and that the sector was the major contributor to the emissions from South America and Sub-Saharan Africa.

Assessing Progress towards Aichi Biodiversity Target 6 on Sustainable Marine Fisheries

Aichi Biodiversity Target 6 calls for all fish and invertebrate stocks and aquatic plants, by 2020, to be managed and harvested sustainably, legally and applying ecosystem based approaches, so that overfishing is avoided, recovery plans and measures are in place for all depleted species, fisheries have no significant adverse impacts on threatened species and vulnerable ecosystems and the impacts of fisheries on stocks, species and ecosystems are within safe ecological limits. This report discusses key elements and approaches for realistic and coherent reporting on the elements of Target 6, including through the use of various indicators and internationally agreed reference points. The connection between Aichi Target 6 and the Sustainable Development Goals (particularly SDG 14) is briefly described. The focus of this report is on marine fisheries, and while many of the considerations are also applicable to inland fisheries, the special characteristics of the latter, including their socio-economic context and intricate link to the terrestrial environment and economic activities, may often require a different set of indicators and reference values.
