Chantal Line Carpentier, an economist for the North American Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC), will deliver a lecture at Clarkson University on Monday, April 14, at 4 p.m. in Science Center Room 362 on the Clarkson campus. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Her lecture, “NAFTA and the Environment: The Picture Becomes Clearer,” will examine the environmental impacts of the North American Free Trade Agreement since its enactment in 1994.
Carpentier is head of Environment, Economy and Trade Programs at the CEC. Prior to joining the CEC in 2000, she worked for two years at the Wallace Institute for Alternative Agriculture, a sustainable agriculture think tank (now merged with Winrock International).
Her work includes assessing the environmental impacts of trade liberalization; promoting trade in green goods and services; fostering green procurement; working with the private financial services sector on strengthening links between investment and the environment; and examining the environmental impact of transgenic maize in Mexico.
The lecture is sponsored by the Clarkson Center for the Environment, the School of Liberal Arts and the Center for Canadian-U.S. Business Studies, part of Clarkson’s Center for Global Competitiveness.
