Environmental Quality and Border Security: A 10-Year Retrospective
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides basic information on environmental quality and protection in the context of existing and proposed border security infrastructure and measures.

 

Border security is an important national priority, and environmental protection in the border region is of critical importance, given the rich natural resource endowments of the region. The shape and form of security infrastructure installed along the border is a critical factor affecting these areas of special concern. Additional installation of security infrastructure along the border will have a large impact on the region, presenting both challenges and opportunities to enhance security while preserving or even improving environmental sustainability.

 

There are mainly five key overlapping challenges in which environmental protection intersects with border security. These include, tourism and recreation economy; habitat integrity and wildlife corridors; water management; flooding, trash and sediment control; Hazmat and emergency response; and air quality.

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable to environmental engineers who are interested in learning more about improving border security infrastructure while preserving environmental sustainability in the region.
