Pangaea was awarded a contract to develop a Needs Assessment for the Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC). The report focuses on improving processes related to the North American Pollutant Releases and Transfers Registers (PRTR) Project. The CEC has established data and related processes to examine information pertaining to the amounts, sources, and management of toxic chemicals within North America. The PRTR is a key project within the CEC’s efforts to improve the availability and quality of environmental information. The final report was not limited to data management. This report also provides clarification of needs which relate to general program and organizational improvement potential.
