Climate policy has been under negotiation at international level for more than twenty years. During this period, mitigation efforts and studies on implementation and governance of climate policies have focused on industrialised countries, paying limited attention to emerging economies.
The objective of the "Evaluating the performance of local climate policies in Mexico” project is to assess what are the determinants of diffusion and successful implementation of climate policy at local jurisdictions in emerging economies.
The project takes an in-depth look into climate governance and policy implementation in Mexico as an example of a major economy actively involved in climate policy. Mexico with its 32 states and 2470 municipalities offers a vast laboratory for studying the factors that influence the implementation of domestic climate policy.
