Fighting against climate change
Protecting natural resources
Thinking cities differently, with its residents
Extending our action
Mexico is the second largest economy in Latin America. It is a modern country in terms of telecommunications, energy and public finances. It has an open economy and has developed strong ties with his American neighbor.
But it has paid a heavy price for these developments: the rapid growth has alarming consequences on the environment, especially in urban areas. Almost half the population is affected by violence and poverty.
Mexico is both an actor and victim of climate change. It has made the protection of its natural resources a priority and has a very proactive position. Examples of its commitment: it hosted COP20 in Cancun in 2020 and has launched an ambitious plan to halve its greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
AFD has been operating in the country since 2009, where it supports green and inclusive growth. In 7 years, it has committed EUR 1.4bn via loans, grants, subsidies and technical assistance.
