Appendix C
Integrated Border Environmental Plan (IBEP) and Border XXI
The Integrated Border Environmental Plan (IBEP) was established by an initiative put forward by the presidents of Mexico and the United States in November 1990. When considering the feasibility of the free trade agreement, both recognized that any economic benefits derived from increased trade along the border could result in severe environmental damage. The IBEP, which began operations in 1992 and finished its first stage in 1994, was designed to promote sustainable economic growth by protecting the environment and preserving the ecological equilibrium. Specifically, its main objectives included the following:
Enforcement of the existing laws and regulations;
Reduction of pollution through the implementation of new technology;
Promotion of a wider cooperation in areas such as urban and regional planning, education, and increased environmental awareness; and
Fostering a better understanding of the environmental situation in the border area.
Available evidence suggests that the development and conclusion of many projects proved successful. In general, however, the objectives and the reach of the plan were not fully achieved.Building on the accomplishments of the IBEP, Border XXI is to be based on more community level participation and a restructured operation mechanism. The program has designated more working groups and will have more bilateral agencies involved. At this time, Border XXI has nine working groups:
Working group on air;
Contingency planning and emergency response; Enforcement;
Environmental health;
Hazardous and solid wastes;
