Timeline Events / Special Climate Change Program 2009-2012 Mexico (PECC)
Elaborated by the Mexican Federal Government this document establishes quantitative mitigation and adaptation goals for the period 2009-2012 and long term goals for 2020 and 2050. It is important because it incorporates actions to be taken by different ministries and goes beyond short term presidential periods. The objectives are specific and provide detail of the type of projects required in each sector. As a result it triggers clean technology innovation and deployment in Mexico. Currently the World Bank has provided US$500 million loan to increase scientific knowledge and technologies in relation to carbon sinks and strategies outlined in PECC.
