Energy policy and environmental impact in Mexico

WEBINAR

Details

In 2016, under the Paris Agreement, Mexico committed that 35 percent of its energy would be clean by 2024; with that number reaching 43 percent by 2030. However, as of October 2020, 74.52 percent of Mexico’s energy was produced in fossil fuel-burning power plants. 

 

What can the Mexican state do to fulfill its Paris Agreement commitment? What are the challenges facing President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s administration in terms of achieving energy security? How are Indigenous and rural communities being affected by energy projects? 

 

Join us in this virtual conversation to discuss these challenges and identify possible solutions.
