WE, concerned organizations from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, express our support for the early ratification and effective implementation of the Minamata Convention on Mercury.  As advocates for our people’s constitutional rights to health and to a healthful environment, we urge the executive and legislative branches of the government to speed up the ratification process of the Convention,

In February 2015, IPEN participated in the Central Asia and Eastern Europe Sub-Regional Workshop in Support of the Ratification and Early Implementation of the Minamata Convention on Mercury that took place in Minsk, Belarus. A presentation, "Деятельность IPEN по решению проблем ртутного загрязнения," was made jointly by Eco-Accord (IPEN Regional Hub for Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia), Russia and Center for Environmental Solutions (CES), Belarus.

For immediate release (Bangkok): The U.S. has led a push at the mercury treaty negotiations in Bangkok to further delay any global action on mercury contaminated sites. The sixth negotiating meeting of the Minamata Convention on Mercury has failed to live up to its title, which references the world’s most infamous mercury contaminated site in Minamata, Japan.
