Geographic / Ecosystems Initiatives (GEI)

US/Canada Air Quality Agreement

- US/Canada Information Statement

- US/Canada Notification Table

Geographic Initiatives (GIs) are a progressive and focused approach to environmental problem solving. GIs embody many of the concepts that EPA endorses in support of its current and future strategic vision. As the name implies, a GI is any geographically focused environmental activity which leverages the resources of states, local governments, regulated communities, environmental groups, and citizens. A GI emphasizes ecosystem protection, strong science and data, partnership/consensus building, and environmental justice. A GI, in an effort to emphasize these items, may concentrate on non-regulatory strategies that complement an already existing regulatory base. GIs encourage innovative approaches to the development and implementation of mutually agreed upon environmental goals.
