Border 2020

Region 9 Workgroups

Workgroups in the Regions of California/Baja California and Arizona/Sonora

The California/Baja California and Arizona/Sonora Regional Workgroups plan and coordinate activities at the regional level, develop biennial action plans, and support the efforts of local Task Forces.  Each Regional Workgroup has one state and one federal co-chair from environment agencies in each country, and work closely with the  Border Environment Cooperation Commission (BECC) Exit to implement projects to fulfill the goals and objectives in Border 2020.  Local Task Forces have been created to identify priority issues and help facilitate pilot projects by engaging with local, state, and tribal governments; academia; NGOs; and the public.
