Abstract

The interaction between Canada, Mexico and the United States in the field of ecology is under the North American Agreement on Environmental Cooperation, the main body on implementation of which is the Commission for Environmental Cooperation. Among main areas of cooperation we can name: monitoring of climate change, support of local ecosystems, the introduction of a green economy, the fight against pollution, environmental law enforcement. A characteristic feature is the establishment of contacts with local communities and involving them in cooperation with intergovernmental agencies, focus on environmental education goals, and openness to the public.
