Mexico - Deliver SLCP programme 

Rationale 

Mexico has published SLCP mitigation strategies to improve air quality and reduce climate pollutants emissions, pledged to reduce black carbon emissions by 51% by 2030 and has signed the Global Methane Pledge. However more action is needed to fulfil its commitments. 

To do so, authorities require more recent information about baseline emissions and the incorporation of SLCPs in Nationally Determined Contributions to estimate, evaluate and analyse the multiple benefits in human health and food security from updated SLCP scenarios. 

The aim of this project is to project provide technical assistance to support Mexico’s Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources in developing a short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) programme to advance policy-relevant research and analysis. 

 

Objectives

This project aims to:

  • Produce a methane roadmap that can be endorsed by the Government of Mexico.
  • Produce an updated national SLCP strategy that can be endorsed by the Government of Mexico.
  • Produce and NDC implementation plan with SLCP implementation measures that can be endorsed by the Government of Mexico.
  • Enable the Government of Mexico to adopt the strategy to regionalise waste valorisation projects.
  • Create monitoring and reporting systems for methane emissions from the oil/gas and waste sectors which the Government of Mexico’s implements.


 

Activities

To achieve these objectives the project will:  

  • An updated national SLCP strategy.
  • An implementation plan for the SLCP strategy and to incorporate it into planning activities.
  • A methane roadmap that follows a methodology agreed with the CCAC Secretariat. Include improved methane emission estimates from the waste and oil and gas sectors.
  • A strategy to upscale waste valorisation projects.
  • A system to monitor and report methane emissions from the oil and gas and waste sectors.
