Awareness Campaign to Educate Community about the Hazards of Mercury to Health & Environment

The Arab Network for Environment and Development (RAED), through its secretariat Arab Office for Youth and Environment (AOYE), conducted a regional workshop for 40 participants representing NGOs, media, scientific experts, and government officials from eight countries (Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Occupied Palestinian Territories, Syria, Jordan, and Lebanon) to enhance the international efforts towards reducing mercury usage and pave the way towards complete elimination. By having international experts from many countries present, AOYE seized the opportunity to widen the scope of discussion to cover regional efforts towards elimination of mercury. In addition to networking with other participants, AOYE prepared a report about the situation of mercury in Egypt.
