Context

Mexico is the second largest economy in Latin America, the 13th largest GHG emitter in the world, and the costs of its environmental degradation were estimated to be approximately 5.7% of GDP in 2013.

Mexico has demonstrated commitment to implement green growth to tackle climate change and as a core national economic development strategy by including inclusive green growth as an objective of its National Development Plan 2013-2018.

While Mexico has committed to robust climate action and sustainability at the national level many of the levers for climate change mitigation and adaptation, and sustainability in general, reside at the state and municipal level, particularly in relation to public transport, solid waste, water and wastewater, and urban planning. To address these issues GGGI is supporting the development and implementation of State Green Growth Strategies, and with recommendations for mechanisms to improve access to financing for public transport reform.
