Mexico-UK PACT


UK PACT has partnered with Mexico, a country with a rich history of commitment to climate action and alliance with the UK.

Mexico was among the first countries to pass comprehensive climate change legislation and submit its Nationally Determined Contribution ahead of the 2015 Paris Agreement, allowing it to become a key influencer in the region. Through the Partnership for Sustainable and Inclusive Growth, Mexico and the UK have committed to collaboration and increased investment in social, economic and environmental sustainability.  International Climate Finance programmes such as UK PACT are supporting action to deliver the Partnership’s objectives.  

Mexico-UK PACT supports projects that respond to Mexico’s emerging priorities, while achieving greenhouse gas emission and poverty reductions. Since the first round of funding launched in 2018, Mexico-UK PACT has funded projects, skill-shares and secondments across five priority sectors: finance, mobility, low-carbon policy, energy, and nature. Following a successful implementation of the first phase of Mexico-UK PACT, the second round of funding was launched in August 2020. Check our portfolio below.
