EC-LEDS Fact Sheet: Promoting Sustainable Economic Growth in Mexico

Mexico is the second largest economy in Latin America, with rapid growth occurring in the industrial and services sectors. A forward-thinking country on climate change, the nation recognizes that the threat of higher temperatures, changes in precipitation patterns, and more frequent weather-related disasters could pose a substantial risk to its expanding economy.

To mitigate climate change, the Mexican government has set forth numerous policies and plans that support its low emission development strategy (LEDS), including the General Law on Climate Change and the Basis for a Low Emission Development Strategy in Mexico road map. Through the Enhancing Capacity for Low Emission Development Strategies (EC-LEDS) partnership, Mexico and the United States are working together to advance the common objectives of encouraging economic growth while reducing emissions over the long term.
