This report includes illustrative case studies on the Obama Administration’s efforts in a number of key countries—Chile, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Morocco, Oman, and Peru—in which USTR and the U.S. Department of State have had intensive engagement on environmental issues in recent years.
