GEF PRESS RELEASE Donors pledge $413 million to help most vulnerable cope with climate crisis

November 9, 2021


In a show of support for those most at risk from climate change, 12 donor governments have pledged $413 million in new funding for the Least Developed Countries Fund during the COP26 climate summit.


The LDCF, hosted by the Global Environment Facility, is the only dedicated source of climate resilience funds for the 46 Least Developed Countries, which have contributed the least to carbon emissions and face some of the highest risks from the effects of climate change.


The pledges from Belgium, the Belgian region of Walloon, Canada, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States were announced in Glasgow, where signatories to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change are discussing ways to close the climate finance gap and meet the commitments made in the Paris Agreement in 2015.

Did you know deadly toxic mercury pollution is documented in 2021 by Oxford University earth scientists to stay airborne up to one year?


~18 - 20 million artisanal miners in ~80 Countries all largely having undiagnosed mercury poisoning use mercury to extract gold from ore supply 20% of the world's gold supply used to make our jewellery, our iPads, iPhones, computers, and other electronics devices release 2,000 tonnes of mercury to our environment annually.


The morbid irony is the same mercury used by the artisanal miners is polluting the air we all breathe, contaminating our drinking water, polluting the Oceans we swim, poisoning the fish we consume causing health issues, and global biodiversity destruction.


December 17, 2020, UK Super Mega Rock Star @robbiewilliams reported he 'almost died’ from mercury poisoning over his seafood habit. He had the highest level of mercury in his body ever recorded in UK.



A Solution; the use of "manipueira" bitter cassava plant-based extract, an option to replace mercury used in ore processing.




There are 87 mercury amalgamation processing centers situated along one-square mile on the Calera and Amarillo riverbanks collectively responsible for the annual discharge of 1.9 million tonnes of acidic toxic tailings surface sludge waste.


This toxic pollutant is laden with 222 kg of mercury, 2,033 tonnes of cyanide, mercury-cyanide complexes, arsenic, lead, and other heavy metals which is poured directly into the rivers to empty 350 Km west into the Pacific Ocean.


These centers are also collectively responsible for the release of 303 kg of mercury, a deadly neurotoxin to our atmosphere annually from burning the gold-mercury amalgam to extract our gold.



To make a sustainable change, we have initiated climate action in Ecuador’s Portovelo-Zaruma mining district 1,200 meters high up in the Amazon Andes.
