Climate, Environment, and Conservation: United States, Mexico, and Canada Conclude Trilateral Agreement on Environmental Cooperation

Today the United States of America, Mexico, and Canada finalized a new environmental cooperation agreement (ECA). The Agreement will take effect upon entry into force of the USMCA and builds on the long history of trilateral cooperation among the three countries to reduce pollution, strengthen environmental governance, conserve biological diversity, and sustainably manage natural resources.

The ECA supersedes the North American Agreement on Environmental Cooperation (NAAEC), which has resulted in two decades of achievements relating to cross border environmental issues. The United States will continue to play a leadership role and will participate in the trilateral environment Council.

The text of the ECA can be found here: https://www.state.gov/documents/organization/287944.pdf and https://www.epa.gov/international-cooperation/commission-environmental-cooperation-cec
