In keeping with the 2001 Framework for Conducting Environmental Assessments of Trade Negotiations, a Final Environmental Assessment of the negotiations between Canada and Madagascar towards a Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (FIPA) has been conducted to help negotiators better integrate environmental considerations into the negotiating process.
The report on this Final Environmental Assessment is now available and we welcome comments on its contents. The comments that are received will be circulated to the Interdepartmental EA of Trade Steering Committee and will inform future environmental assessments of trade negotiations.
All interested parties are invited to submit their comments by March 13, 2009.
