About this book

This volume examines, from various perspectives, the environmental aspects of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), including the North American Agreement on Environmental Cooperation (NAAEC). The interdisciplinary focus is on legal, economic, social, political and scientific issues, with contributions from American, Canadian, Mexican and Chilean authors. Among the issues discussed are the environmental regulations of the NAFTA nations and Chile, as well as the environmental implications of conducting cross-border business.
