Along the entire U.S.-Mexico border, the North American Development Bank (NADB) works with border communities to develop and finance infrastructure projects that improve the environment and health conditions. With the onset of COVID-19 and its increasing effects on these communities, the NADB Board of Directors established a temporary program to support communities dealing with the economic, health, and social impacts of the pandemic (“ProRec”). Through this program, two Texas border communities will be able to refinance existing debt while a third in Chihuahua will benefit from a US$1 million grant to improve wastewater collection infrastructure.
The North American Development Bank (NADB) has hired John Beckham, with more than 20 years of experience in executive leadership positions in banking, business and strategic planning, as its new Deputy Managing Director. Mr. Beckham was appointed by the NADB Board of Directors after a national search and competitive selection process.
Since its creation in 1994, the North American Development Bank (NADB) has helped preserve, protect and enhance the environment and public health of the U.S.-Mexico border region, home to more than 25 million residents. Working closely with communities, water utilities, local and federal governments, private sector sponsors, non-governmental organizations and academic institutions, NADB has played a key role in the progress achieved in improving various indicators in the region related to the provision of basic services, environmental quality and public health. In addition, it has become a benchmark for binational coordination on various environmental issues.
