Last month, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department signed a four-year memorandum of cooperation with the State of Chihuahua, Mexico. The memorandum outlines ways that Texas and Chihuahua will work closely on activities such as sharing best practices and maintaining productive communication on air quality, water quality, and waste management issues. As the two states and countries plan environmental programs and priorities, the agreement details coordination and partnership on cross-border issues.
In addition, the governments of Texas and Chihuahua met at the 74th Joint Advisory Committee meeting to share successful environmental projects. The binational committee fosters collaboration and the sharing of information to improve air quality along the U.S.-Mexico border.
