The creeping mercury menace - a solution is here
Aug 16, 2017
The Minamata Convention enters into force today. Ratified by more than 50 countries, including Ghana, it seeks to increase global efforts to significantly reduce and eliminate mercury releases in the atmosphere, land and water bodies. The UN in Ghana, lead by UNDP and UNIDO, is supporting the country in reducing its mercury use. As the global mercury phase-out journey begins, policy makers and citizens are being called to support the implementation of this timely Convention by taking responsible actions. The successful implementation will also contribute to the achievement of SDG 3 (good health and well-being), 6 (clean water and sanitation), 14 (life below water) and 15 (life on land).
