El Paso

El Paso’s Resilience Journey

El Paso is home to a richly diverse, bilingual, and bicultural population. Its harsh desert environment means grappling with high population density in a fragile ecology, climate extremes and variability, and reliance on limited transportation and grid connections.

The collaborative agreements between El Paso and neighboring Cuidad Juárez, Mexico, exemplify international cooperation. Together, the cities are addressing immigration, and working to increase the resilience of their shared and limited water supply.
