Description

When Canada, Mexico and the United States established the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), they also agreed on an environmental side accord, the North American Agreement on Environmental Cooperation (NAAEC). One of the principal aims of the NAAEC is the promotion of effective enforcement by the Parties of their domestic environmental legislation. Accordingly, the NAAEC provides, under Articles 14 and 15, a means by which anyone living in any of the three countries of North America may bring the facts to light concerning the enforcement of environmental legislation on the books of any of the three countries.
