Southwest border Cross-Domain Strategies

Section 7: Cross-Domain Strategies

Examine the potential for public or private partnerships and interagency efficiencies in addressing All-Domain Awareness (ADA) challenges and coordinated efforts in the land, air, maritime, and cyber domains in the unique homeland security environment of the Southwest border (SWB).

Although this strategy has a counternarcotics focus, the SWB represents a multithreat, multidomain, multiagency challenge that poses significant challenges for homeland security planners because of the asymmetric and interconnected nature of regional crime networks and cross-border violence. For this assignment, complete the following:

  • Prepare a 1-page quad chart and a 1-page supporting document that explains the planning variables associated with cross-domain strategies.
  • Draw heavily from the relevant chapters of the NSWBCN Strategy, leveraging the substantive work that has been done by policymakers at the national level.

Section 8: International Factors

This week, you will identify and detail the potential international players, including the role of the Department of State, President Obama’s SWB Security Bill, the Merida Initiative, and support by nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), along with counterparts in Mexico.


Your boss is attending a planning conference in Mexico City where ideas are being requested to improve cooperation with Mexico. Prepare a 2-page thought piece to help her prepare her remarks. In this piece, address the following:

  • What diplomatic, informational, military, and economic variables will enable improved theater security cooperation (TSC), building partner capacity (BPC) and international engagement?
  • Incorporate relevant information from the case study, empirical data regarding SWB security statistics, and useful material from the NSWBCN Strategy document.
  • Include useful and appropriate bibliographic references.

Section 9: Interagency Process

This week, you will outline the potential for improved whole-of-government, interagency coordination among domestic and international partners. In this section of your Key Assignment, you will identify the framework for a possible policy planning effort that would serve as a catalyst for improved multiagency, cross-governmental cooperation and collaboration at the SWB.

Draft a 2-page road map, similar to the plan of action and milestones (POA&M) or concept of operations (CONOPS). Be sure to include the following:

  • Propose steps to significantly raise the level of coordination among the constellation of interagency players at the SWB.
  • Draw from your case study, NSWBCN Strategy, and the Patriot Act to formulate a plan of action that leverages existing capabilities and introduces new ideas.
  • Identify at least 3 specific examples of potential for improvement versus transformation. For example, there are several coordination centers with overlapping missions that are colocated at the SWB that appear redundant.
  • Include useful and appropriate bibliographic references.
  • APA format is a must to include in text citation in each of the section
  • At least 3 to 4 acadimic resources for each sections
