International Environmental Policymaking and Transatlantic Co-operation

International Environmental Policymaking and Transatlantic Co-operation

Setting the Agenda for the World Summit on Sustainable Development

Transatlantic co-operation between the US and EU Member States has an important role to play in the system of international environmental policymaking. Greater transatlantic leadership  coupled with extensive consultation of developing countries would greatly enhance policymaking capacities in the system of international environmental governance.

Ecologic, with the support of the German Marshall Fund of the United States and the Luso-American Development Foundation brought together a group of distinguished environmental policy practicioners and researchers for an expert workshop held in Lisbon, 10-12 February 2000. The purpose of the workshop was to develop strategies for enhancing transatlantic co-operation in the area of international environmental policymaking.

This Policy Brief [pdf, 1 MB, English] seeks to convey the main recommendations developed during the workshop to a wider audience of decision-makers and the interested public.  It seeks to help facilitate and support preparatory efforts for the World Summit on Sustainable Development  2002 (WSSD).
