Contents Notes
"In April 2003, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Mexico's Secretar ia de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales (SEMARNAT) initiated the third bi-national agreement to protect the environment and public health in their shared border region through the signing of the United States-Mexico Environmental Program: Border 2012. Over the past ten years, the Border 2012 program has brought together federal, state, and local governments; United States border tribes; Mexico's Indigenous communities; and stakeholders and border communities of both countries, to address the most pressing environmental issues along our shared border. Through the Border 2012 Program, we have promoted and fostered a strong bi-national partnership that has allowed us to achieve concrete and measurable results and adopt an effective bottom up approach for decision making and priority setting. The Border 2012 Program has also been instrumental in developing and strengthening the capacity of border communities to become more sustainable and to better address environmental and public health issues. We are very proud of the achievements made in protecting and improving environmental conditions for millions of residents along the United States-Mexico border, which could not have been possible without the support and commitment of all of our partners. As National Program Coordinators, we acknowledge and celebrate your work, dedication, and commitment, which has been an essential ingredient in the successful accomplishment of our ambitious goals and objectives. This report highlights key results achieved in the past two years and is also the last report of the Border 2012 Program, which reaches its conclusion this year. Though we are closing the Program, we are excited about the new bi-national border program, Border 2020, which was developed through extensive public input and participation. The new Program, signed in mid-2012, will continue the long standing collaboration and cooperation among the United States and Mexico to improve the environment in our shared border region."--Message from the national coordinators.
