The theme for this year’s Council session is Clean Technology for Resilient Communities.
How can clean technology help communities in North America better prepare for and adapt to more extreme weather events, including flooding, wildfires, and rising sea levels? In the face of a global pandemic, how can we accelerate the shift to green technology in order to help make our energy supply more resilient?
Hear first-hand from subject matter experts, business leaders, youth, NGOs, and other stakeholders as they consider what’s next as we take action to address new environmental challenges.
The Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) was established in 1994 by the governments of Canada, Mexico and the United States through the North American Agreement on Environmental Cooperation, a parallel environmental agreement to NAFTA. As of 2020, the CEC is recognized and maintained by the Environmental Cooperation Agreement, in parallel with the new Free Trade Agreement of North America. The CEC brings together a wide range of stakeholders, including the general public, Indigenous people, youth, nongovernmental organizations, academia, and the business sector, to seek solutions to protect North America’s shared environment while supporting sustainable development for the benefit of present and future generations
The CEC is governed and funded equally by the Government of Canada through Environment and Climate Change Canada, the Government of the United States of Mexico through the Secretaría de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales, and the Government of the United States of America through the Environmental Protection Agency.
