June 12, 2013

During the inauguration of National Environment Week, President Enrique Peña Nieto led the presentation of the National Climate Change Strategy containing adaptation and mitigation measures to counter the effects of this global phenomenon, which constitutes a step towards dealing with a reality that threatens the balance of the planet and the survival of our species. (Presidency of the Republic)

Mexico's President Enrique Peña Nieto has unveiled a National Climate Change Strategy that he says will lead to "green growth" in the country.

The plan is focused on "eight axes of action" along with increasing research, promoting environmental issues and international cooperation.

The eight axes are:

  • FIRST. Reduce vulnerability to climate change of Mexicans living at risk and strengthen their resilience.

  • SECOND. Reduce the vulnerability of production systems and strategic infrastructure against weather contingencies.

  • THIRD. Foster adaptability of ecosystems to the effects of global warming.

  • FOURTH. Accelerate energy transition towards clean energy sources.

  • FIFTH. Reduce power consumption intensity through efficiency and rationality schemes.

  • SIX. Transition to sustainable city models, with intelligent mobility systems, integrated waste management and buildings with a low carbon footprint.

  • SEVEN. Encourage better agricultural and forestry practices, with schemes for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD Plus).

  • EIGHT. Reduce "short life" pollutant emissions, such as black carbon and methane, to improve the health and welfare of Mexicans.
