North American Collaboration for Conservation of Transboundary Protected Areas

Status: Completed
Operational Plan: 2013 - 2014

The transboundary protected areas in the Big Bend-Río Bravo region have been the focus of four years of CEC support to increase the ecosystem health and resiliency of the region to climate change. This region is a composite of riparian, grassland and mountainous habitats that harbors endangered plants and animals and supports migrating species. Project work has focused on identifying priority areas for conservation within these habitats, implementing joint strategies for adaptive management, and assisting communities with the development of sustainable livelihoods.
