MARGARET WILDER, Udall Center associate professor of environmental policy and associate professor of Latin American studies,

is lead author -- with co-authors Christopher A. Scott, Nicolas Pineda, Robert G. Varady, Gregg M. Garfin, and Jamie McEvoy -- of an article, "Adapting Across Boundaries: Climate Change, Social Learning, and Resilience in the U.S.-Mexico Border Region," recently published online by the Annals of the Association of American Geographers.

The article looks at the vulnerability of the U.S.-Mexico border region's people and environments to the effects of climatic change and globalization.

The study is a product of "Moving Forward: Adaptation and Resilience to Climate Change, Drought and Water Demand in the Urbanizing Southwestern United States and Northern Mexico," supported by a grant from the Sectoral Applications Research Program at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Established in 1987, the Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy sponsors policy-relevant, interdisciplinary research and forums that link scholarship and education with decision-making. The Center specializes in issues concerning: (1) environmental policy, primarily in the Southwest and U.S.-Mexico border region; (2) immigration policy of the United States; and (3) Indigenous nations policy.


The Native Nations Institute for Leadership, Management, and Policy (NNI), founded in 2001 by the Morris K. Udall Foundation (now Morris K. Udall and Stewart L. Udall Foundation) and The University of Arizona and housed at the Udall Center, serves as a self-determination, governance, and development resource for Indigenous nations in the United States, Canada, and elsewhere.
