Current climate scenario predictions identify the US-Mexico border as a "hot spot" of climate change, both in relation to increased rainfall intensity and increased temperatures. Twin city areas in the transboundary setting have long histories of management that rely on mutual dependency. Appropriate land use, watershed management, and flood-attenuation plans are critical, yet challenging, especially in cross-border urban areas. Collaboration is imperative for binational sustainable development.
