Think tank

SCERP, affiliated with five US and five Mexican universities, assists US-Mexico border peoples and their environments by applying research information, insights, and innovations. SCERP was created to initiate a comprehensive analysis of possible solutions to acute air, water, and hazardous waste problems that plague the US-Mexico border region. A consortium of 10 US and Mexican universities works closely with the Border 2012 Program and other organizations and has the multifold mission of applied research on the environment, outreach, education, policy development, and regional capacity-building for the communities-the ultimate customers. SCERP exists to address the rapidly deteriorating border environment, protect and enhance the quality of life of border residents, and support the educational mission of member universities. Its vision is of a vital region with a dynamic and diverse economy, sustainable environmental quality, intact ecological systems, and a more equitable quality of life. The center's approach is to integrate and focus multidisciplinary academic expertise; binational, state, tribal, and local policy-making; NGO advocacy capacity; and private industry attention and influence on transborder issues.
