ALFIE COHEN, Miriam. El medio ambiente en la frontera México-Estados Unidos: ¿Las ONG ambientalistas, nuevos actores sociales?. Estud. front [online]. 2002, vol.3, n.5, pp.43-75. ISSN 2395-9134.

This article highlights the role played by the ONG'S in front of the environmental damage in the border region, which we share with the United States. Its objective is to show the scope and the achievements, as well as the challenges and the goals of these new social actors. If we agree about the environment damage is one of the global issues, presented as an critical concern both for the Northern countries as for the Southern countries. The Mexico-United States borderline is an excellent test laboratory to verify not only the existence and action of new groups and social individuals, but also to bring to a discussion table the damage, chaos and environment dangers of this region shared with the United States.
