Evento

Vigesimoquinta sesión ordinaria del Consejo de la CCA y reuniones del Comité Consultivo Público Conjunto

La Comisión para la Cooperación Ambiental (CCA) invita al público en general a participar en la sesión anual de su Consejo, integrado por los ministros federales de medio ambiente de Canadá, Estados Unidos y México. Este año el presidente del Consejo, el administrador de la Agencia de Protección Ambiental (Environmental Protection Agency, EPA) de Estados Unidos, Scott Pruitt, será el anfitrión de sus homólogos: la ministra de Medio Ambiente y Cambio Climático de Canadá, Catherine McKenna, y el titular de la Secretaría de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales de México, Rafael Pacchiano Alamán, en la ciudad estadounidense de Oklahoma City.

Al igual que en años anteriores, un foro público organizado por el Comité Consultivo Público Conjunto (CCPC) de la CCA precederá la sesión del Consejo. Tomando como base la fructífera reunión del CCPC llevada a cabo en noviembre del año pasado en Chicago, con el tema: “Acuerdo paralelo del TLCAN sobre medio ambiente: evaluar el pasado y mirar hacia el futuro”, el foro del CCPC de este año se centrará en dos aspectos clave: futuras áreas de cooperación trilateral en materia medioambiental y expansión de la participación del sector privado en futuros proyectos e iniciativas de la CCA.
