CTG Releases Findings on Mitigating Cross-Border Air Pollution
CTG has released a new research report, titled "Mitigating Cross-Border Air Pollution: The Power of a Network." The report analyzes the efforts of a multi-organizational network of government and private sector participants along the US-Mexican border. The network, known as the JAC (Joint Advisory Committee for the Improvement of Air Quality in the Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua/El Paso, Texas/Doña Ana County, New Mexico Air Basin), has been highly successful in binational pollution mitigation activities and provides important lessons for building similar collaborative networks among a diverse set of stakeholders.
