Two girls for the primary time will lead worldwide company tasked with managing water assets, boundary points on U.S.-Mexico border
EL PASO, Texas (Border Report) – A Chihuahua native will head the Mexican part of the Worldwide Boundary & Water Fee.
The designation of Adriana Beatriz Carolina Resendez Maldonado as Mexico’s new commissioner coincided with the swearing-in of her U.S. counterpart, Maria Elena Giner. Every lady will characterize her nation’s pursuits in a world company that manages joint water assets – together with water allocation, flood management and worldwide reservoirs – and mediates boundary points between Mexico and the US.
“I’m grateful to Overseas Minister (Marcelo) Ebrard and Roberto Velasco for the belief they’ve positioned in me. […] I’ll proudly characterize my nation,” Resendez tweeted. Velasco is the Overseas Ministry’s director for North America. Resendez replaces Humberto Marengo Mogollon on the IBWC, which in Mexico is thought by its acronym of CILA.
Resendez has been working for the Mexican part of the IBWC for 23 years, the final three as space director. She has a bachelor’s diploma in civil engineering and a grasp’s in water assets, each from the Autonomous College of Chihuahua.
“She would be the first lady (commissioner) within the Mexican part of the IBWC, which asserts the Overseas Ministry’s dedication in favor of a feminist overseas coverage. That is the primary time that the Mexican part and the U.S. part can be (concurrently) headed by girls,” the Ministry stated in announcing the appointment.
The American part of the IBWC relies in El Paso; the Mexican part headquarters is in Juarez.
