The reactive nature of all these border environmental institutions constitutes the basic problem. They are not designed to be proactive and, consequently, cannot prevent environmental degradation from unsustainable development. Unless they are radically redesigned or supplemented with a much broader planning and regulatory enforcement structure, they will never do more than treat the symptoms of the disease of unsustainable development. The driving force behind the booming US-Mexican border economy is low-cost labor.
Despite these criticisms, a recent San Diego State University study of the IBEP indicates many of its programs and activities have proceeded and proved useful for the border communities. The GNEB is attempting to take a long-term view including the use of long-term indicators of human and ecosystem health. It has been unsuccessful to date in building local capacity, but has begun to foster public participation. It is effective at calling for and reporting on the transparency and accountability from the various other border institutions and government agencies working on border issues.
All but one of the twelve NADBank-financed projects received a BEIF grant. And a total of $102 million worth of BEIF grants were allocated to Mexican projects. 26 million in loans, that number was expected to increase because loan packages for three of the projects were still being negotiated as of December 2000. Table 3 provides a breakdown of BECC-certified, NADBank-financed projects in the United States. S. projects receiving NADBank support involved loans. S. communities had easier access to capital markets and state grant programs (compared to Mexican communities), and they were able to secure loan financing at better rates than NADBank could offer.
