Advice to Council 95-06 — North American Environment Fund

As requested by Council, JPAC has examined how the North American Environment Fund could be established in accordance with the parameters set out in Council Resolution 95-9.

The attached document entitled “Administrative Structure and Funding Criteria for the North American Environment Fund” represents the advice of JPAC in the form of a working document.  Such a document should allow the Alternates Representatives to review and decide on the issues related to the creation of the Fund.

JPAC recommends that a simple consultation take place by mail & electronic means with stakeholder in January 1996 to allow a final document for decision by Council in February or March in time for launching the Fund at the Council Session in Hamilton in April 1996.
