Chile

The Pacto Acción Ecológica de America Latina organized an open consultation in Santiago de Chile from 4 to 5 June 1993, the Regional Consultation of NGOs and Social Movements on the Conference on Environment and Development. The principal objective of the consultation was the analysis of the results of UNCED and the Global Forum, and to discuss modalities of implementation of the alternative treaties.

With the aid of Japan, the establishment of a national center for the environment is planned at the University of Chile. The center will concentrate on pollution problems in Latin America.
