Chapter Summary

This chapter seeks to simply take stock of the current approaches to transboundary environmental impact assessment (TEIA) that are being employed in North America. Given the varying mechanisms used to implement TEIA, the approach taken is to look at TEIA from domestic, as well as from bi-lateral and tri-lateral perspectives. The chapter provides a sense of the broad range of approaches to TEIA that exist within the region. It also provides some insight into the reasons why TEIA has developed in a more decentralized, demand driven manner in North America than in Europe. Out of this analysis, the author makes some further observations respecting approaches to negotiating a comprehensive North American TEIA agreement that are more likely to meet with success.
