By strengthening institutional capacities through training and shared information, BECC and its partners develop strategic studies with the goal of identifying needs and project opportunities and improving the effectiveness of infrastructure program investments that could be supported by BECC and NADB.
What BECC Is Doing
BECC has developed specialized studies, needs assessments, and various publications intended to serve as tools to identify and implement environmental infrastructure projects in a variety of sectors.
BECC conducts key training and workshop events, with the participation attendees representing federal, state and local governments, academia and public interest groups.
BECC publishes a series of studies aimed at clearly documenting the existing environmental needs and opportunities in border communities.
Facing the climate change challenges for the region, BECC is currently involved in promoting state greenhouse gas (GHG) emission inventories and projections, and mitigation and adaptation planning efforts, as well as providing regional energy assessments that could identify future projects and other capacity development initiatives for the region.
To continue supporting border communities, BECC works on building relationships and partnerships with stakeholders in federal, state and local agencies, international organizations, academia, private and public sectors.
