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.

Our collaboration 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).

This programme is built on the pilot sessions on mercury-added products held in July 2020. Please see for more information:The 2020 deadline for mercury-added products and Intersessional work on products and processes.

An overview of the season’s calendar is available here.
