Mexico: Low-carbon Development for Mexico
The Low carbon Development for Mexico report by ESMAP, provides an analysis of how Mexico is able to substantially reduce its carbon emissions whilst at the same time growing the economy. The document begins by asserting that low]carbon development is indeed possible in Mexico however there are many entrenched barriers to achieving it which come in the form of information gaps, regulation and trade.
The report evaluates interventions that promote low carbon development in five key sectors: Electric power, oil and gas, energy enduse, transport, and agriculture and forestry. Each sector is subject to a cost analysis to determine the most viable intervention mechanisms that can be implemented within 5 to 10 years. In addition, low carbon initiatives are analysed for each sector and forecasts are produced to determine potential carbon savings to 2030.
