The North American Development Bank (“NADB”) is a binational financial institution established by the Governments of the United States and Mexico to provide financing to support the development and implementation of infrastructure projects, as well as to provide technical and other assistance for projects and actions that preserve, protect or enhance the environment in order to advance the well-being of the people of the United States and Mexico.
Established in 1994, the NADB was created under the auspices of the North American Free Trade Agreement, although it exists independently of that agreement. NADB is capitalized in equal parts by the governments of the United States and Mexico and has a binational Board of Directors. NADB serves as a partner and catalyst in communities in the U.S-Mexico border region to enhance the affordability, financing, long-term development and effective operation of environmental infrastructure that promotes a clean, healthy environment for border residents. NADB does this by providing loan and limited grant financing for environmental infrastructure projects and technical assistance. Both public and private entities involved in developing environmental infrastructure projects may qualify for financing. Water pollution, wastewater treatment, water conservation, and municipal solid waste are the core sectors of the Bank’s activities. Financing also can be provided in other areas, including air quality, clean and renewable energy, public transportation, and hazardous waste, when sponsors are able to demonstrate tangible environmental and/or health benefits for border residents.
