CEADIR Series: Unlocking Investment for Mexico's Clean Energy Goals

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 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 explored the linkages between Mexico’s climate change mitigation and clean energy goals.
