In the run-up to the meeting, which willl take place 10 - 15 March, 2016 in the Dead Sea, Jordan, IPEN has released its "Quick Views" of the Minamata Convention's INC7. This document is a summary statement of some IPEN views about issues that will be taken up at the INC7; including, among others, contaminated sites, artisanal and small-scale gold mining, mercury supply and trade, mercury waste, effectiveness evaluation and finances.
For the meeting, IPEN created a small poster based on a design by EcoWaste Coalition to remind participants that it is still distressingly easy to find products containing mercury from around the world. IPENers from Armenia, Bangladesh, Cameroon, Kenya, Philippines and Thailand brought mercury-containing creams and soaps purchased in their countries for the display.
