9 Very few commentators perceive the three NAFTA environmental institutions for what they are: limited first steps toward broad North American cooperation on environmental issues. As such they are working toward that lofty goal of actual cooperation and partnership in a slow but sure fashion. In other words, within their mandate, we see less conflict and more collaboration as a result of the creation of institutional structures, which require that the nations work together. For example, the over 50 BECC/NADBank projects certified to date exceed the number of projects and people served in all preceding efforts in the border region.

To gauge what they have accomplished for the border region, we first present data on BECC certifications and NADBank financing packages completed by December 2000. We then compare the financing packages for the projects to the estimated financial need for water and wastewater infrastructure in the border region. BECC began accepting project applications in May 1995. S. projects had earned BECC certification. S. S. projects were smaller and easier to certify. S. projects were well-developed before reaching BECC; often they had been developed with assistance from federal or state 36 subsidy programs or in response to health and environmental regulations.

The public also participates in BECC’s own operations. Applications for certification are reviewed by BECC's staff, which makes recommendations to BECC's Board of Directors and distributes project information for public review and comment. A binational Advisory Council, which consists of border residents, also advises the Board of Directors. The Advisory Council is intended to provide an avenue for public input into BECC activities and certifications. The decision process of the Board of Directors also has a public component.
