Mexico-Low-Carbon Development

Jump to: navigation, search

Overview

"The Mexico study involves the preparation of a comprehensive package comprising: a low carbon strategy; the identification of priority sectors for carbon abatement; pre-feasibility level analysis of specific investment options; a country specific Marginal Abatement Cost" (MAC) curve; identification of implementation barriers and necessary policy responses; and a prioritized list of potential interventions once low cost financing for these projects has been established.

The study assesses priority mitigation areas and ranks abatement options based on financial and economic costs, cobenefits, and the ease of implementation, given social, legal, and institutional considerations. The four priority areas evaluated in the study are —(a) transport, particularly increasing modal share of public urban transport and raising vehicle fuel efficiency; (b) generation of power in industry through cogeneration as a low cost power supply source, and improvement of renewable energy potential; (c) energy efficiency in residential, commercial, industrial and public sectors; and (d) land use, which can provide the single largest potential for reducing GHG emissions in Mexico.
