U.S. / Russia Environmental Agreement
In 1972, the United States and the Soviet Union signed an Agreement on Cooperation in the Field of Environmental Protection to provide a framework under which the two nations could collaborate on environmental issues of mutual interest and concern. The Agreement was renegotiated in 1994 to replace the U.S.S.R. with the Russian Federation as signatory. Bilateral cooperation is carried out under 12 subject areas. Lead agencies are the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Russian Ministry of Natural Resources (MinPrirody).
