Global challenges need joint responses. The climate crisis is one of the greatest threats to people, ecosystems and the planet. In its sixth assessment, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) confirmed that global warming events have increased in exposure and intensity, causing major adverse impacts, especially on the most vulnerable communities. In this context, it highlights the importance of promoting resilient climate development, which addresses these impacts in a cross-cutting manner to move towards a sustainable, dignified and inclusive future.
Through the Mexican-German Climate Change Alliance, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH has collaborated to drive ambitious climate action. Specifically, it has worked with the Government of Mexico through the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (SEMARNAT), especially with the General Directorate of Climate Action Policies (DGPAC), the National Institute of Ecology and Climate Change (INECC), the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit (SHCP), the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (SADER), subnational governments and other partners, including civil society.
In this third phase, the Mexican-German Climate Change Alliance has collaborated on four objectives together with SEMARNAT and partners to implement concrete measures at federal and subnational levels to achieve Mexico’s NDC targets.
In the framework of the presentation of the results for the third phase, we share this document on the scopes and pathways for future cooperation.
This document aims to be a compendium of the impacts, best practices, lessons learned and products developed during the third phase of the Mexican-German Climate Change Partnership on behalf of the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection (BMWK) through the International Climate Protection Initiative (IKI).
Each section is divided into the four axes mentioned above and include a summary with key messages, climate actions taken and product highlights, including studies, infographics, videos, articles, communication strategies, among others.
We hope you enjoy this tour and that you find it useful to learn about what has been developed during the four parts of this third phase, and that it helps promote sustainability and replicability of climate action. The Mexican-German Climate Change Alliance will continue to work together with SEMARNAT and its national partners to promote a sustainable, dignified and inclusive Mexico focused on wellbeing.
