Building a Sustainable Future in Central America and the Dominican Republic
This video highlights efforts by the USAID CAFTA-DR Regional Environmental Program to aid countries in Central America in strengthening institutions, laws, and regulations that seek to improve the environmental performance of their businesses and overall sustainability of their society.
The CAFTA-DR Regional Environmental Program works on wastewater management, environmental impact assessment, enforcement and compliance of environmental legislation, solid waste management, and energy efficiency.
The video explores an example of the project's success in El Salvador, where an online Environmental Assessment System was developed. The online system supports the management and expedition of construction permits, which saves time for builders and investors and further protects the environment.
