Mexico

National Climate Change Strategy

Executive
Action plan
Mitigation Framework
Passed in 2007
The strategy sets out the main focal areas regarding cross-sectorial climate policy, adaptation to climate change and reduction of GHG emissions, presented as 'eight axes of action'. These are:
1) Reduce vulnerability to climate change of Mexicans living at risk and strengthen their resilience;
2) Reduce the vulnerability of production systems and strategic infrastructure against weather contingencies;
3) Foster adaptability of ecosystems to the effects of global warming;
4) Accelerate energy transition towards clean energy sources;
5) Reduce power consumption intensity through efficiency and rationality schemes;
6) Transition to sustainable city models, with intelligent mobility systems, integrated waste management and buildings with a low carbon footprint;
7) Encourage better agricultural and forestry practices, with schemes for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+);
8) Reduce short lived pollutant emissions, such as black carbon and methane, to improve the health and welfare of Mexicans.
The Strategy also reinforces Mexico's mitigation goals to reduce emissions by 30% by the year 2020 with respect to the business-as-usual scenario, and by 50% by 2050, as compared with emissions in 2000.
