OECD ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE REVIEWS: MEXICO 2013 [8 January 2013]
Press Release 8 January 2013
Mexico can do more to promote socially-inclusive green growth
08/01/2013 - Mexico is faced with difficult trade-offs as it pursues its economic, social and environmental goals. Like other emerging economies Mexico is balancing the need to protect its natural resources with the need to address high levels of income inequality and poverty.
This OECD Environmental Performance Review of Mexico outlines steps the country has taken to address growing environmental pressures and identifies cost-effective policies and practices to further its efforts.
“Mexico’s triple challenges are to boost its economy, improve its environment, and provide decent living standards to all its citizens. Environmental degradation and dwindling natural resources cost Mexico 7% of its GDP in 2010 according to Mexican estimates. But the right mix of policies can promote inclusive green growth” said OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurria.
