In October, 2013, more than 90 countries signed the Minamata Convention on Mercury, an initiative begun in 2009 by the Governing Council of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP). It will eventually result in less mercury being dispersed into the environment.

In this issue, David Bellinger discusses the challenges that risk communicators have had in realizing this goal.
