Fifth Session of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee to Prepare a Global Legally Binding Instrument on Mercury (INC5)

13-18 January 2013 | Geneva, Switzerland
Highlights for Tuesday, 15 Janaury 2013
DAILY WEB COVERAGE

On Tuesday, INC5 delegates met in plenary in the morning and afternoon, to address: information exchange; research, development and monitoring; reporting; health aspects; implementation plans; treaty objective; relationships with other agreements; definitions; institutional arrangements; final provisions; and compliance/implementation committee. 

The contact group on selected technical articles and a Friends of the Co-Chairs group on technical assistance and technology transfer met throughout the day. A technical group on emissions thresholds met in the morning, with the contact group on emissions and releases reconvening in the afternoon and continuing its work into the night. Following a “Swiss break,” a new contact group on health aspects and implementation plans convened in the evening.

Notwithstanding "rain, sleet or snow," participants head to the INC5 negotiations at the CICG.
