Mexico, first country with an adaptation plan

Mexican government concerned about the environment

The Mexican Federal Government, with the support of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), released the "Politic Framework for Medium-Term Adaptation" in which eleven government institutions are involved and whose main theme is adaptation. The presentation took place at the Mexican Pavilion of the Cancunmesse venue.

Dr. Veerle Vanderweed, Director of the Group of Energy and Environment of the UNDP, said that "there is urgency and need to implement adaptation plans," and added that "Mexico is the first country with such initiatives."

She concluded that adaptation does not receive much attention because most programs focus on mitigation, a topic equally important.

The General Director of Climate Change Policy, Juan Mata, reported that this phenomenon forces Mexico to rise, as an immediate task, to assume the responsibility to coordinate and harmonize public policies to reduce vulnerability and strengthen adaptation capabilities of the different sectors of society, of natural and productive systems, as well as the country's strategic infrastructure. "

He said that it is important to involve different sectors of the government, and that Climate Change also affects the economic, farming and environmental sectors, among others.
