How well is North America dealing with trade and environment after 20 years of NAFTA?

The CEC’s Joint Public Advisory Committee (JPAC) welcomes one and all to come to Washington, DC, on 17 and 18 October, to debate whether environmental cooperation across our borders has been successful or has fallen short over the last 20 years, and what future collaboration should look like.  The debate will contribute to an official advice JPAC will draft to North America’s three environment ministers.
