This strategy presents a roadmap to reduce short-lived climate pollutants in order to improve air quality, mitigate climate change and reduce health and ecosystem impacts. These pollutants include black carbon, methane, tropospheric ozone and HFCs.
Implementing the strategy, Mexico aims to reduce black carbon emissions by 51% in 2030 compared to the business as usual scenario. In addition, while tackling methane Mexico would reduce total GHG emissions by 9% by 2030 (INECC, 2020).
Actions to reduce emissions fare, for instance, to increase the number of electric vehicles and journeys taken on public transport; cooking using cleaner fuels and technologies to reduce indoor and outdoor air pollution; and controlling particulate pollution from sugar mills (CCAC, 2020).
