Revision and update of elements of Mexico's Low Emissions Development Strategy

SEI is helping Mexico update its national emissions baseline and identify climate change mitigation opportunities.

In recent years, the Mexican government – through the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources and the National Institute of Ecology – has been involved in various efforts related to climate change and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, including the development of a national emissions baseline, identification of emission reduction opportunities, construction of abatement cost curves, and developing alternative emissions scenarios, all with the broader intent of developing a national emissions reduction strategy.

This project seeks to revise, update, and strengthen these previous efforts, and generate key elements for the formulation and implementation of a long-term national Low-Emissions Development Strategy, using the LEAP system and drawing on SEI's mitigation expertise.

SEI, in collaboration with the Universidad Autónoma de México, is working in three key areas: 1) revising and updating the national greenhouse gas emissions baseline; 2) updating opportunities and actions for emissions reductions in a mitigation scenario; and 3) performing a cost-benefit analysis and developing cost curves.
