New partnerships, new sectors and a vision of helping preserve, protect and enhance human health and the environment of the U.S.-Mexico border region were part of what made 2012 a significant year for the Border Environment Cooperation Commission (BECC). Along with its sister organization, the North American Development Bank (NADB), BECC reached milestones, and ventured into emerging areas.
In its 17 years of operation, BECC has certified more than 200 environmental infrastructure projects along the U.S.-Mexico border. For its part, NADB has managed approximately US$1.91 billion to finance 171 certified projects estimated to cost a total of US$5.12 billion to build. During 2012, BECC certified 19 projects representing a total estimated investment of US$1.8 billion, of which NADB financed US$583.9 million. An estimated 7.5 million border residents will benefit from improved environmental and health conditions as a result of these projects.
