Effectiveness of Greenhouse Gases Reduction Strategies and Policies in Mexico

Violeta Mugica-Alvarez, Leticia Ramos-Guillén, Jesús Figueroa-Lara, and Miguel Torres-Rodríguez
Abstract—Mexico as one of the No Annex I countries signatories of Kyoto protocol has conducted several activities to face climate change. This paper presents the assessment and discussion of the actions comprising the three programs in the country during the period 2009-2012: The federal program named Climate Change Special Program (PECC from its Spanish initials), the Clean Development Projects (CDP) registered in the IPCC, and the State Government Actions (SGA). Only 36 of the quantitative 53 PECC´s goals achieved some progress, although the global goal of reducing 129.03 Mt CO2eq/year by the end of 2012 was fulfilled and exceeded, but several important goals were not met. Some actions were performed in order to generate clean energy, such as the construction of an Eolic Park and a hydroelectric, but the government has continued benefiting the extraction of fossil fuels. The estimated effectiveness for PECC actions was 13.4 million of euros/ Mt CO2eq.

Index Terms—Mitigation, GHG policies, climate change.
