Basel Convention Regional Centre for South-East Asia (BCRC-SEA) assisted MOEF in the organizing of the workshop. Objective of the Workshop - To conduct a raise awareness workshop involving all relevant national stakeholders in order to sensitize participants regarding mercury issues and engage them to support the ratification of the Minamata Convention - To develop raise awareness materials to be used during the workshop - To identify and list the priority areas and actions for implementation of the Minamata Convention in Indonesia based on the input provided by workshop participants and the conclusions. Pacitan Regency was selected as the venue of the workshop since it was one of the licensed ASGM locations in Indonesia. The mining activity was conducted by a group of miners for their daily income and does not comprise the community’s source of income in general. It is expected that Pacitan Regency could be set as an example for the implementation of mining practices in an environmentally sound manner. The venue of the workshop was set at the meeting hall of Kebon Sari Village Office, Punung District, Pacitan Regency.
