Minamata online is an initiative from the Secretariat of the Minamata Convention.
Minamata Online is a new series of digital engagement to provide an opportunity for government officials, scientists, NGOs, and other stakeholders to better understand the Minamata Convention's provisions, as well as policy and scientific aspects. The sessions are arranged according to three streams: implementation review and support, mercury science, and COP-4 preparations.
The sessions are 1-1.5 hours long, and some will be held twice on the same day to accommodate different time zones. Each session will be announced individually, and registration will be available on the Minamata Convention website.
The collaborating partners for Minamata Online are the Global Mercury Partnership (GMP), the International Conference on Mercury as a Global Pollutant (ICMGP), and the Geneva Environment Network (GEN).
