    Description

    Ecosystems are bisected by international borders along the United States-Mexican border; infrastructure and the heightened security activities bisect the north-south cores, corridors, and buffers essential to preservation of ecosystems. The Southwest Consortium for Environmental Research and Policy (SCERP) and its partners convened an annual policy conference, Border Institute VI, where participants developed 10 recommendations to affect change in current transboundary ecosystem management policies throughout the United States-Mexican border region. Recommendations addressed institutionalization of existing programs, sovereignty concerns, education of citizens, land use planning, funding and revenue streams, approaches to water protection, watershed assessment of the Rio Grande/Río Bravo and Colorado Rivers, a public relations campaign, and specific changes to existing border programs and organizations.
