This study examines the prospects for administrative and func-
tional reform of the International Boundary and Water Commission,
United States and Mexico. A variety of changes along the border,
demographic, political, and attitudinal, now impinge on the Commis-
sion's capacity to manage transboundary resource problems within
its jurisdiction. To cope with these changes, the Commission must
become more responsive to its various border constituencies. Specific
oppo rtunities for assuming new functional commitments are limited
by the Commission's treaty mandate, though additional development
is possible in several areas, to include sanitation and water quality,
inst ream flow, and creative approaches to project financing.
