Panel Sessions


  (P01) Evaluating the Effectiveness of the Global Mercury Treaty


Room Day Lead / Chair Description
Pentland Monday David Evers (Biodiversity Research Institute),


Susan Keane
(Natural Resources Defense Council)
A panel comprised of both scientists and policy makers will explore the gaps, needs, hurdles, government participation and scientific capacity (especially in the developing world) for creating a global mercury monitoring network that can evaluate the effectiveness of the global legally binding instrument on mercury. The Panel will discuss next steps, such as
(1) how to raise awareness of the need for a standardized and replicable monitoring network,
(2) how to best communicate information,
(3) what components are needed for cost-effective and customized plans and
(4) where are the best places for standardized monitoring stations. Panel topics may include artisanal small-scale gold mining, contaminated sites, human health concerns, and monitoring techniques.
  (P02) Health Impacts from Mercury: Emerging science and unanswered questions


Room Day Lead / Chair Description
Pentland Tuesday K. Clive Thompson (ALcontrol Laboratories),


Eric Uram (Safeminds)
1). From a human health viewpoint, what questions remain unanswered?
2).In the absence of known thresholds, can subtle effects, e.g. on brain function be safely ignored?
3).How should benefits from seafood nutrients be taken into regard when considering the adverse effects of methylmercury?
4). Given the need to compare risks from mercury and alternatives, what are the main gaps in knowledge about mercury risks from dental fillings, background emissions, vaccines and other medicinal products?
5). How should potential genetic susceptibility to mercury toxicity affect risk assessment?
6). How should we prioritise future research?
  (P03) Mercury in industry
