Although most air pollution problems are caused by local or regional sources of emissions, air pollution does not stop at national borders. Transboundary flows of pollutants occur between the United States and our closest neighbors, Mexico and Canada, as well as between North America, other continents, and sources in the global commons such as international shipping and aviation.

    The Air Quality Agreement is an environmental treaty between Canada and the United States. It was signed on 13 March by Canadian prime minister Brian Mulroney and American President George H. W. Bush and entered into force immediately. It was popularly referred to during its negotiations as the "Acid Rain Treaty", especially in Canada. Negotiations began in when Mulroney first discussed . Air pollutants come from multiple sources. It is therefore paramount that we take action together — across sectors and national boundaries. To improve air quality, UNECE member States have been working successfully to reduce air pollution in the region through the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution.
