Mexico

Mexico faces rapid urbanization and urban sprawl, contributing to growing greenhouse gas emissions and the loss of ecosystem services. Transport is responsible for over a third of the country`s total emissions, 10% more than G20 average. Rail and domestic navigation play a minor role in sector emissions, with road causing almost 97% of emissions. Mexico‘s CO2 emissions from the transport sector have increased by 80% since 1990 and are projected to increase between 27% and 112% by 2030 under business-as-usual.

GIZ and the Mexican government cooperate to translate the Mexican Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), as well as other national and international development agendas into specific transport action at regional and local level. Next to low carbon urban development and enhancing sustainable mobility alternatives, clean energy options for both freight and passenger transport have become an important focus of the Mexican-German Cooperation.
