Description

In 1997 the governments of Canada, Mexico and the United States agreed to a North American Regional Action Plan (NARAP) on mercury, intended to support the domestic and trilateral efforts to reduce the exposure of North American ecosystems, flora and fauna, and especially humans, to mercury. The ultimate goal of this NARAP is to prevent and reduce anthropogenic releases and transfers of mercury to the North American environment, through the development and execution of appropriate national and international initiatives.
