Webinar — Improving the Environment Under the USMCA

This webinar — the fourth in the series on the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) — featured a discussion of the USMCA’s chapter on the environment, which incorporates major improvements over NAFTA. Most observers agree that the new provisions, if implemented in good faith, could contribute to environmental improvements in such diverse areas as marine and forest resource management and air quality.

This event was part of a series of five webinars on the USMCA, co-sponsored by the Center for the United States and Mexico and Haynes and Boone, LLP. Each webinar in the series featured outstanding experts from the United States, Mexico and Canada and provided viewers with up-to-date information on the progress, successes and challenges of putting the USMCA’s provisions into practice. Additional support for this webinar was provided by Transnational Dispute Management. Follow @BakerCtrUSMEX on Twitter and join the conversation online with #BakerMexico.
