Description

At the 2001 CEC Council session, the environmental ministers of Canada, Mexico and the United States agreed to undertake an initiative to analyze issues related to “local water pricing and watershed management, and promote accessible, affordable technologies for improving water management.” In response to the Council’s initiative, the Secretariat initiated, as part of its 2002 Law and Policy Program, a plan to develop a concept paper outlining a long-term vision of the role of the CEC in the area of watershed management, including consideration of affordable water-related technologies and water pricing. As part of this paper, the Secretariat would develop recommendations for the Council to consider on possible CEC work in this area.
