elements of cooperation established with these organizations in 1997
and 1999, respectively.
Experience has shown that the joint activities which flowed from these
cooperative arrrangements has catalysed deeper and more reflective
interactions between the different policy communities, and opened
up new avenues of cooperation.

with other relevant international organizations, as well as NGOs,
in order to enhance synergies between legal frameworks and principles
related to the trade and environment regimes.
