Adriana Zuniga and Christopher Scott of the Udall Center, along with John O’Neil of Research Innovation and Impact, represented the University of Arizona at the Border Solutions Alliance convocation held at the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine in Washington DC on February 6, 2020. Under the broad banner of “Data-Driven Discovery at the US-Mexico Border” Adriana moderated the session “Regional Sustainability” that examined research and potential solutions for Urban-Rural Resilience and Transboundary Watershed and Aquifer Resources, together with participants from the University of California San Diego, El Colegio de la Frontera Norte, New Mexico State University, and West Big Data Innovation Hub. John spoke on UArizona’s strengths in border research and policy. This event was the culmination of a series of workshops supported by the National Science Foundation that brought together researchers from universities along the border and across the border. The evening beforehand, the group was hosted at the Mexican Cultural Institute by the Mexican Ambassador to the U.S., Martha Bárcena (pictured with Adriana and Chris).
