The public session is part of a larger two-day meeting, during which CAFTA-DR  countries will reaffirm their commitment to work together to preserve and protect the environment through implementation of the CAFTA-DR Environment Chapter and the Environmental Cooperation Agreement.  The meeting will build on a strong foundation of cooperation among member countries to address mutual environmental concerns.
