Current Status of Mercury in Jordan

Baytuna Society conducted a number of activities to properly understand the current situation and dangers associated with mercury contamination in Jordan. These activities included a review of all legislation governing mercury, literature review of all research studies conducted in the country, informational interviews with government officials, and the staging of events targeting relevant stakeholders to ascertain levels of understanding about the issue. In addition to formative research, Baytuna Society members also conducted a national awareness campaign to share their findings and give more information to citizens about developments around the international treaty on mercury.
