In Ghana, Pact is working to strengthen small-scale mining communities, primarily by reducing the use of mercury in the artisanal and small-scale gold mining sector. We're using education, the introduction of better technology, strengthened equipment supply chains and demonstrated business incentives to expand mercury-free gold production.
Pact's past work in Ghana has included efforts to stem environmental degredation, with a focus on improving people's livelihoods. We built partnerships at the community, regional and national levels to strengthen policies and systems for better natural resource management, and strengthened the capacity of local organizations working to protect ecosystems.
