The Mercury supply and storage Area of the UNEP Global Mercury Partnership held its annual meeting on Thursday 25 February 2021, in an online setting.

The meeting was first provided with an update by the Secretariat of the Partnership on ongoing and future planned activities, as well as by the Secretariat of the Minamata Convention on issues related to mercury supply sources and storage under the Convention.

Participants subsequently engaged in an information sharing session on mercury supply sources as well as options and availability of infrastructures and techniques for the management, storage and final disposal of surplus mercury.

Discussions were then held on future priorities of the Partnership area, opportunities for collaboration, as well as opportunities for possible future workshops and meetings.
