This white paper describes the current deficit in the U.S.-Mexico border region in terms of renewable energy, energy efficiency, and transportation projects focused on the reduction of greenhouse gases (GHG).
In the presentation, the argument is made that the primary reason this project deficit exists is due to:
- limited resources for project development,
- lack of capacity building, at the most fundamental level, in the public and publicprivate sectors, and
- lack of technical assistance program to address this deficit
Specifically targeting a technical assistance program for renewable energy, energy efficiency, and transportation projects to achieve GHG reductions would be invaluable in promoting an environment for effective climate action in border communities. A proposed technical assistance program could help public sector entities build the bases on which they can develop both mitigation and adaptation greenhouse gas projects.
