Abstract: 
The Mexican and United States Governments have increased efforts on the development of an integrated plan on border environmental cooperation. The plan formalizes and carries out the commitment made by Presidents George Bush and Carlos Salinas Gortari in Monterrey, Mexico on November 27, 1990 to address border environmental problems and builds on cooperation to improve cross border environmental cooperation that has occurred since 1988. The continuation of the initial implementation was set forth in a joint meeting of the two governments on December 13, 1990. This account is limited to the international enforcement components and implications of the cooperation.
