As the second largest country in Latin America and the world's 12th largest producer of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, Mexico is one of the most important global players on climate change, facing a slowdown in its decarbonisation path, while sharing the challenges of the green agenda.
The EU's engagement in Mexico during 2021-2027 focuses on the policy first principle, using international partnerships to leverage EU action and leave a sustainable footprint in the country, with a special focus on the Strategic Partnership (2008) and the Association Agreement (2009).
The Global Green Challenges project, implemented by FIIAPP, is part of the broader EU action to assist federal authorities in adopting sustainable and well-planned sustainable mobility strategies, in the pre-investment and preparation phases of electric mobility or zero-carbon transport projects that contribute to a significant reduction of the sector's carbon footprint in urban areas and to the planning of sustainable smart cities.
Activities focus on the States of Mexico, Mexico City, Nuevo Leon, Queretaro and Yucatan. Following a demand-driven approach, the planned activities are framed within existing projects that are sufficiently advanced to ensure their feasibility and where EU expertise, technology transfer and integrated transport models represent an added value for the green agenda.
General Objective: Support Mexico in net decarbonisation and climate resilience towards green transition and sustainable growth according to its climate targets under the Paris Agreement.
Specific Objective: Effectiveness of sustainable, smart and inclusive urban mobility enhanced in specific federal entities of the country.
