The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Global Forum on Environment will bring together leading actors in the field of chemicals and waste management of mercury to promote effective engagement, collaboration, and action on eliminating or reducing mercury from the supply chain and reducing its harmful impacts on human health and the environment.
The Forum will provide an opportunity for participants to: exchange experiences on common challenges in implementing and enforcing the Minamata Convention on Mercury; and discuss innovative solutions and best practices to eliminate mercury from the value chains. The Global Forum will also:
- raise awareness among stakeholders on the harmful impacts of mercury on human health and the environment and possible solutions to these challenges;
- promote new economic tools developed by the OECD and other intergovernmental organizations to implement these solutions; and
- contribute to the implementation of the Minamata Convention and the new UN framework on the sound management of chemicals and waste beyond 2020.
