Assuming both the funds are raised and the plans are made, the mechanism of the BECC criteria 14 In the hope of recovering millions of acres of endangered wetlands, coral reefs and wildlife habitat, thus saving the Everglades National Park, the restoration aims to revamp the water flows within the 100-mile Everglades system and capture more fresh water and distribute it in ways to revitalize ecosystem. The project includes eliminating 240 miles of levees and canals, building above-ground reservoirs and underground aquifers, and developing new wetlands.
Mexico border region. The creation of these organizations represents a unique cooperative attempt to address environmental infrastructure needs of a transboundary region through a trade agreement. The development assistance provided by these organizations is innovative because of its focus on producing debtfinanced and user-fee-supported projects that are developed with public participation. Because BECC and NADBank are significant components of the governments’ efforts to address environmental infrastructure needs in the region, their performance is significant in determining how well government assistance has addressed the region’s environmental problems.
As of December 2000, the Bank had approved about $249 million in BEIF grants and five loans totaling $10 million. In addition, three other loan packages were being developed. The total value of the financing packages that NADBank had participated in was $927 million. Only one project with NADBank financing—Brawley’s water project—was complete by December 2000. Nineteen were under construction, and twelve were in bidding and design phases. BECC and NADBank are working with another twenty-one communities to develop infrastructure projects for future certification and financing.
