Mexico City in our Blog

Local governments encounter diverse obstacles to financing climate actions, because we typically depend on national resources. In this context, cities have to innovate and find solutions to finance our climate action programs.

The decision this week by European leaders to fast-track ratification of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change is historic. It is now certain that less than one year will have passed from the beginning of the COP21 climate negotiations in December 2015 to the moment when the Paris Agreement will come into force.
