Assessment of Mexico's policies impacting its greenhouse gas emissions

The Climate Action Tracker (CAT) compares and assesses national and global action against a range of different climate targets across all relevant time frames. This report assesses whether Mexico’s current policies and climate action pledges meet the country's targets and approach the targets required for a global 2°C or lower pathway. According to the report, Mexico is among the countries most advanced in reducing emissions from deforestation and ensuring afforestation through payment for environmental services. However, improvements could be made, particularly in agricultural activities that cause deforestation and forest degradation.
