Central American Regional Workshop on Clean Fuels and Vehicles: 21-22 April 2004

The CCAD (Comision Centro Americana del Ambiente y Desarrollo) joined the Partnership for Clean Fuels and Vehicles at the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg in 2002. The CCAD is the regional representative of the seven Ministers of Environment in Central America. Fortunately, the region has phased out lead out of gasoline; however, the levels of sulfur in fuels are high. In order to address for this issue, the US Environmental Protection Agency, sponsored by the Partnership, organised a regional workshop on clean fuels and vehicles. This activity served as the first step for the region to bring stakeholders together to: discuss the issue; develop a regional working group; and begin discussing a regional action plan to reduce sulfur in fuels. The workshop was held on 21-22 April 2004 in Guatemala City, Guatemala.
