The CEC's strategic plan for 2010-2015.
The CEC celebrated its fifteenth anniversary in 2009. The Parties took note of the progress we have made in the maturity and extent of our environmental cooperation, in promoting sustainable development in the region, in strengthening environmental enforcement, in addressing the linkages between trade and environment, and in promoting public participation in regional environmental matters. We look forward to continued progress in these areas.
At the Council Session in Puebla, Mexico in 2004, the Parties established a path forward through the Puebla Declaration for 2005–2010. In 2009, at the Denver Council Session, the Parties identified a new vision based on the experience gained from the implementation of the Puebla Declaration. Furthermore, the Council recognized that the environmental challenges faced today are different from those in 2004, and committed to renew, revitalize and refocus the CEC to ensure alignment with the environmental priorities of the countries and strengthening the overall governance of the CEC (see Appendix 2 for the Denver Statement).
