Committee on Binational Regional Opportunities

The Committee on Binational Regional Opportunities (COBRO) was formally established in 1996. In 2002, COBRO began serving as a working group to the SANDAG Borders Committee in order to facilitate a better understanding of binational border-related issues and needs of the California-Baja California region.

COBRO advises the SANDAG Borders Committee concerning both short and long-term binational related activities, issues and actions; provides recommendations regarding binational border-related planning and development; and identifies ways to assist and coordinate with existing efforts in the binational area. The membership consists of elected officials and staff representatives of academia, business, community organizations, and the Mexican government. A membership list and charter are available at the bottom of this page in PDF format.
