1.132 In our case studies, we found that responsible departments have different information and knowledge about achieving the environmental objectives and outcomes of their agreements. We found that the departments were aware of the environmental results for two agreements (the Montreal Protocol and the Ozone Annex), were unaware of the results for two others (MARPOL and Ramsar) and were partially aware of an agreement (UNFA). We found that, for the Montreal Protocol and the Ozone Annex, the expected results were clearly defined and the results measured. 1.58 The trial showed that Environment Canada was aware of NOx and VOC emission estimates and the resulting ground-level ozone concentration in the air. There is a clear objective for the desired environmental outcome – the reduction of soil concentration in the ozone zone – as well as the estimated emission reduction targets that are needed to contribute to this outcome. In addition, the Department measures the results of both ground ozone concentration and estimated NOx and VOC emissions. Given that there are clear and comparable measures against desired environmental outcomes, we believe this is a report against the results and purpose of the ozone annex. The Government of Canada will continue to work to improve reporting provisions under international environmental agreements. The federal department or any authority responsible for any major international environmental agreement will report on the expected results and results; If this is not included in these reports, additional specifications will be provided for measuring and calculating results; What are the results? and how it will evaluate and verify results to improve performance. 1.62 Therefore, maritime navigation is of crucial importance to the country. However, shipping causes various forms of pollution that affect and harm the environment. Oil spilled from ships is an important type of marine pollution.

Assessing the total impact of oil on the marine environment is a complex task. While oiled seabirds are a well-known victim of sea oil pollution, particularly in Atlantic Canada, there are many other, less obvious, harmful effects on marine animals, plants and ecosystems. A detailed table of international environmental agreements, to which the EU is already a party or signatory, has been drawn up. Environment Canada`s ozone Schedule emission reduction targets are the implementation of the NOx and Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emission reduction measures that are defined for Canada in the international agreement. The decrease in ambient air ozone content in eastern Canada is expected to result from the implementation of Canadian measures related to the implementation of the emission reduction measures agreed by the United States in the Ozone Annex. In addition, the main light reference agreements have also been grouped according to general environmental themes according to the structure of the situation plan. Canada`s multilateral environmental agreements include air, biodiversity and ecosystems, chemicals and waste, climate change, environmental cooperation, oceans and oceans, and meteorology. [17] Canada has taken an initiative because of the diversity of Canada`s natural resources, climate and populated areas, all of which can contribute to environmental stress. 1.19 Performance Outlook. The definition of clear, quantified and time-limited performance expectations is an essential cornerstone of effective accountability.

Services cannot be held responsible for achieving results unless these results are adequately defined in the first place.
