Abstract


  • Mercury (Hg) is a potent neurotoxin and globally reducing

    environmental levels is seen as paramount for protecting

    human and wildlife health. In 2013, many countries finalized the

    negotiations on, and have now signed, the Minamata Convention

    on Mercury, which commits participating countries to reduce

    emissions and use of mercury. Successful implementation of the

    treaty will require adequate verification through globalmonitoring.
