Environment Canada`s ozone Schedule emission reduction targets are the implementation of the NOx and Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emission reduction measures that are defined for Canada in the international agreement. The decrease in ambient air ozone content in eastern Canada is expected to result from the implementation of Canadian measures related to the implementation of the emission reduction measures agreed by the United States in the Ozone Annex. 1.120 The three departments responsible for implementing the five agreements we reviewed – Environment Canada, Transport Canada and Fisheries and Oceans Canada – unanimously stated that their pen-level responsibility was clearly defined and delegated. These include responsibility for setting performance expectations, monitoring and reporting, and verifying performance and taking the necessary steps to ensure that the results and results of environmental agreements are achieved. In addition, we interviewed officials from the Privy Council Office, Treasury Secretariat and Foreign Affairs Canada to identify and better understand the key government processes and mechanisms available to ensure accountability for results as soon as the agreements are in place. The EIS believes that the new legally binding agreement should be based on four pillars of action. 1.9 Historical background. International agreements on border waters and commercially valuable wildlife such as whales, seals and fish enter the late 19th, however, few such agreements were reached until the second half of the 20th century. In 1972, the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment in Stockholm marked the beginning of a broad international effort to protect, conserve and improve the environment. Since then, several important environmental agreements have been negotiated. 1.22 The government`s transfer policy requires the use of a results-based management accountability framework under a federal grant or contribution funding program.
In addition, the government generally encourages its use for key policies, programs and initiatives. However, there are no other formal requirements to use this framework or similar tools. It is up to the relevant spring services to use the necessary financial resources to define the expected environmental outcomes and performance for their agreements. 1.13 In Canada, Parliament and Canadians do not always have adequate information on the progress made under our agreements. In our 1998 report, Chapter 2, Working Globally – Canada`s International Environmental Commitments, we noted that Canada does not always have an overview of how it works in implementing its international environmental commitments.
