IPEN

A Toxics-Free Future

Mercury Treaty

The seventh session of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee (INC7) for the international Mercury Treaty is underway in the Dead Sea, Jordan. After holding a side event focusing on mercury-contaminated site identification, characterization and remediation at the beginning of the week, IPEN is continuing to participate by presenting interventions during plenary, attending contact groups on technical, financial and reporting issues, and meeting with delegates and other colleagues. 

IPEN Participating Organization BaliFokus organised a photo exhibit in the exhibition area of the Mercury Treaty's 7th Intenational Negotiating Committee (INC) meeting currently underway in the Dead Sea, Jordan. The exhibition shows some pictures of mercury intoxicated suspects, children and adults, from Indonesia's artisanal small-scale gold mining (ASGM) hotspots and the former thermometer factory in Kodaikanal, India.
