The UN Environment Global Mercury Partnership consists of stakeholders from governments, industry, non-governmental organizations, and academia who are dedicated to reducing mercury pollution and protecting human health and the environment from the impacts of mercury. Initiated in 2005 by a decision of the UN Environment Governing Council, the Partnership plays an important role in catalyzing global action on mercury and offering information, capacity-building, and awareness-raising in support of implementation of the Minamata Convention.
The Partnership consists of eight areas. These areas represent sectors that use mercury or process raw materials that contain mercury, as well as key themes in mercury management and science. Learn more about the work of the Partnership areas by exploring their dedicated web pages as well as the Resources and Events pages of this site.
