Ministry of Climate Change organises awareness seminar on mercury


The Ministry of Climate Change in collaboration with United Nations Environment and the Global Environment Facility (GEF) organised an awareness seminar on mercury and its impacts on human health and the Pakistani environment.

The Ministry of Climate Change with development partners is implementing a project on Development of Minamata Initial Assessment in Pakistan which is aimed to strengthening the baselines on mercury management, development of national mercury release inventories, piloting of sectoral action plans as a follow up of prioritisation, including indicative sampling and development of national mercury management plans.

The seminar was also aimed to highlight the harmful impacts of mercury and briefing on phasing out of mercury use in the country. The use of mercury poses risks to environment and human health, especially the health of children. In Pakistan, mercury emission and transfer are mainly from extraction and use of fuels, intentional use of mercury in industrial processes and other intentional processes such as dental mercury.
