Project reference: [MX-23-002] Mexico - Household energy sector strategy for the state of Puebla 

What we're doing

This project will deliver a Household Energy Sector Strategy for the State of Puebla which includes a black carbon assessment for the residential sector with a focus on the burning of residential fuels for cooking to support Mexico’s inclusion of black carbon in their Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), as well as policy recommendations for SLCP reductions in the sector. The project will lay the foundation for improved air quality monitoring of PM2.5 and black carbon exposure in targeted communities. This project compliments ongoing projects for black carbon mitigation funded by the Commission for Environmental Cooperation for North America.

This project will achieve by its completion: 

  • The Government endorses the Household Energy Sector Strategy, local community assessment, black carbon assessment and policy recommendations by the end of the project. 
  • The Government of the State of Puebla has increased capacity to monitor, assess, and reduce black carbon emissions from the household energy sector by the end of the project.
