The United States and Spain Using Bilateral Diplomacy to Sperhead Global Conversation Efforts

For the United States, a healthy environment and a strong economy go hand in hand. While humans cannot flourish without access to natural resources, a strong, market-driven economy remains paramount to protecting and conserving these resources for our own benefit and that of generations to come. This past April, on the 48th annual Earth Day (widely viewed as the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement), the White House issued a statement by President Trump highlighting the United States’ commitment to furthering “this rich legacy of conservation” and cherishing “our magnificent land and waterways, abundant natural resources, and unique wildlife.” At the same time, the United States considers it of upmost importance that economic progress continue “in concert with ‒not in opposition to‒ protecting the environment.” The United States remains collectively committed to mitigating greenhouse gas emissions through increased innovation on sustainable energy and energy efficiency, and working toward low greenhouse gas emission energy systems. America has a good story to tell on how to grow the economy while safeguarding the world’s natural heritage and the global network of U.S. diplomats are the protagonists in this story.
