Considerable scientific knowledge has been developed on sources and emissions of mercury, its fate, pathways and cycling through the environment, human exposure and impacts on human health. An agreement has been reached between scientists that mercury exposure today is so high in many areas of the globe that it threatens human health. This scientific knowledge, obtained through studies carried out in various research centers in all continents, formed the basis for policy makers decision to establish an international agreement on reduction of emissions and exposure to mercury. The Minamata Convention was signed in 2013 and ratified in 2017.  Therefore, the ICMGP 2019 Conference will be a very important step in assessing the completeness of our knowledge on mercury as a global environmental pollutant on one side, and implementation of solutions to reduce the emissions and exposure to this pollutant on the other side. In this way, the Conference will be the first major event of testing the efficiency of implementation of the Minamata Convention in various parts of the world. Needs for improvement of our knowledge on mercury in the environment, as well as measures of improvement of the Minamata Convention implementation efficiency will be discussed. Therefore, the theme of the ICMGP 2019 is:
