The U.S-Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Mexican Environment and Natural Resources Ministry (SEMARNAT) Border 2020 National Coordinators will participate in the first biennial National Coordinators Meeting (NCM) under the Border 2020 U.S.-Mexico Environmental Program in El Paso, Texas, September 21-23, 2015. This meeting will provide an opportunity for the National Coordinators to showcase Border 2020 accomplishments, as well as reexamine the goals, objectives, and operations of the program. During this meeting, the coordinators also plan to complete action plans for the upcoming two years.
Following the meeting, EPA will participate in the Children's Environmental U.S.-MX Border Symposium, which aims to increase knowledge of how early childhood exposures can affect children’s health and to facilitate networking among the healthcare community, promotoras, and the public.
