CLIMATE SIGNIFICANCE

With over 200,000 different species, Mexico is home to 10–12% of the world's biodiversity. About 2,500 species are protected by Mexican legislation. Mexico is one of 17 ecologically megadiverse countries, ranking fourth in the world for its biodiversity in terms of number of species. Thanks to this incredible life, Mexico has brought the world foods such as chocolate, jalapenos and avocados. If that wasn’t enough, Mexico is also the home of the axolotl, not only one of the funniest, cutest animals in the world but also a potential cure for cancer. 

Mexico has incredible natural assets that feed its dynamic economy and people. Mexico is also exposed to geological and climatic catastrophes. It sits on an unstable geological fault. It’s bordered by a growing desert to the North, massive volcanic mountains to the South, and two oceans that impose their systemic weather changes to the coasts.

In 2012, Mexico passed a comprehensive climate change bill, a first in the developing world, setting a goal for the country to generate 35% of its energy from clean energy sources by 2024 and cut emissions by 50% by 2050 from the year 2000 baseline. Although these targets are inconsistent with the Paris 1.5°C target, they marked a new era in Mexican politics with sustainable development at the centre of its economic and social model. Mexico has acknowledged the dangers that come with climate change and has the will to prepare for and mitigate those challenges. ¡Vamonos Chingon, Ayuda ya!

DATA INSIGHTS

Mexico is ranked as an upper-middle-income country by the World Bank.  To understand Mexico’s situation in the fight against climate change, it is helpful to observe its history of carbon emissions and exposure to climate risk. The following graphs provide an overview of Mexico’s historic greenhouse gas emissions in perspective with global emission levels, as well as the country’s climate action and sustainability performance.
