3. TRANSBOUNDARY ENVIRONMENTAL COOPERATION

A. PRIOR INFORMATION/CONSULTATION/ ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT

(1) International Agreements

(a) Bi- and Tri-lateral Agreements

(i) Czech Republic-Germany

The Czech-German Environmental Treaty, signed on 24 October, focuses on common activities and cooperation in the border area between the two countries. Anticipated cooperative projects include conducting joint transboundary environmental impact statements for new projects and establishing transboundary nature preserves. The treaty establishes a joint environmental commission to lead and coordinate activities contemplated by the agreement.


(ii) Greece-Bulgaria

On 19 September, Greece and Bulgaria signed an accord regarding water reserves of the Nestos River. Bulgaria's guarantee that Greece will receive almost 30 percent of an average annual national flow of 1.5 million cubic meters for the next 35 years allowed Greece to begin operating the Thissavros dam near the Bulgarian-Greek border. The Greek state-owned power company operates the dam and performed an environmental impact assessment (EIA) in 1983. No European EIA standard was applied because the 1985 EC Directive on EIAs had not yet been adopted. Observers claim that operation of the dam damages the Nestos delta, which is protected under the 1971 Ramsar Convention on Wetlands of International Importance.


(iii) Mexico-United States Border Environmental Cooperation Commission (BECC)

The 1995 BECC Criteria for Project Certification (see 6 YbIEL190 ( 1995)) were revised and expanded in 1996 with respect to EIAs. The BECC, established under a side agreement to the North American Free Trade Agreement, certifies proposed environmental infrastructure projects on the Mexico- United States border for funding consideration by the North American Development Bank. The BECC cannot certify a proposal without reviewing
