This report provides an overview of the progress made by the GEF-funded and UNEP-led planetGOLD program from July 2020 through June 2021, and reviews advances made toward closing financing gaps, supporting formalization of the sector, and connecting miners with mercury-free technology and formal gold markets

As we reflect on the challenges of the past year, the planetGOLD program is also looking forward to significant growth and expansion. The program will soon welcome eight more countries, with seven more anticipated to begin implementation in 2023.
