Abstract

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to analyze what has happened to the US–Mexico border region's environmental nongovernmental organization (ENGO) sector and to understand how it fared over time by interviewing leaders of these groups in multiple regions on the border. ENGOs gained saliency and momentum during the NAFTA negotiations and were able to address environmental problems on the border. Almost 20 years later, some ENGOs no longer exist due to funding, structural and leadership challenges. However, as this research indicates, committed people still provide environmental leadership on the multiple sites along the border, not necessarily through ENGOs, but in other capacities.
