The Environment

Concern for the environment continues to be integrated into almost every area of the Secretariat's economic and social developmental work. At the root of this is recognition that good environmental practice is a pre-condition for sustainable development. The core of this work is promoting agreement on major environmental issues, the integration of economic and environmental policies, technical assistance and training in environmental management, and support for the Iwokrama International Rainforest Programme in Guyana.
