Mexico-UK PACT

ukpact-mexico

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. Ahead of COP 26 and over ten years after Mexico hosted COP 15, UK PACT will support projects that respond to Mexico’s emerging priorities, while achieving greenhouse gas emission and poverty reductions.

In the first round of funding, Mexico-UK PACT funded 13 projects and three skill-shares.  Following a successful round of implementation of the first phase of Mexico-UK PACT, the second round of funding was launched in August 2020 (see carousel below). Projects have been selected across five priority sectors: green finance, sustainable mobility, climate policy, energy and forests and land use.
