Environmental Assessment of NAFTA
Text size:
NAFTA - 2013

Status: Completed

Operational Plan: 2010

The ongoing environmental assessment of NAFTA is a cornerstone of the CEC. This project will enhance the CEC's efforts to monitor the environmental effects of NAFTA and broaden the understanding of environment and trade linkages to promote policy coherence, at both the domestic and the regional levels in North America.

The project also aims to support the ongoing collaboration and information exchange among trade and environment officials of the three countries, with a view to improve regional and national coordination, including between the CEC and the NAFTA Free Trade Commission (FTC).
