Mexico adopted ambitious greenhouse gas mitigation goals through its General Law on Climate Change and the Nationally Determined Contribution submitted to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Mexico also recently adopted landmark legal reforms that are expected to unleash the development of renewable energies and accelerate energy efficiency investments, including a Clean Energy Certificates market and a law on energy transition. On April 12, the CEADIR discussion series will explore the linkages between Mexico’s climate change mitigation and clean energy goals.

 
Santiago Enriquez, Climate Change and Environmental Specialist for CEADIR, will highlight CEADIR’s research on energy efficiency and greenhouse gas mitigation in Mexico.
 
Claudio Alatorre, Lead Climate Change Specialist of the Inter-American Development Bank, will discuss opportunities to use climate finance to support clean energy investments in Mexico.
 
Lisa Viscidi, Program Director for Energy, Climate Change and Extractive Industries of the Inter-American Dialogue, will highlight Mexico’s opportunities to expand clean energy innovation to meet climate change mitigation goals and boost economic growth.
 
The event will be held from 9:00-10:30 AM (EDT) at Crown Agents, 1129 20th Street NW, Washington, DC, and will also be available through a live streaming webinar. Please RSVP to join in-person or by webinar. Both in-person and web participants will have opportunities to ask questions.
