PAPUA NEW GUINEA ASGM MERCURY REDUCTION
Department of State, Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs, Funding Opportunity SFOP0005869, 2019

Papua New Guinea (PNG) is preparing for obligations it will take on for its artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM) sector once it joins the Minamata Convention on Mercury. Specifically, information obtained through this project will be instrumental in the development of PNG's National Action Plan for ASGM. This project will inventory the indigenous ASGM sector in PNG to determine how much mercury and what kinds of processing techniques are being used, as well as associated demographics. Only U.S. nonprofit/nongovernmental organizations [501(c)(3)], foreign nonprofit organizations, and public international organizations are eligible for this grant. A single award is anticipated from estimated funding of $398,000. The closing date for applications is July 8, 2019. https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=315821
