Map Mexico

Mexico is one of Germany’s strategic partners in the context of international cooperation. GIZ has been working here for more than 30 years on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and also, since 2008, on behalf of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB).

Mexico is Latin America’s second largest economy and by far the most important export nation in the region. Mexico has signed numerous multilateral and bilateral trade agreements since 1994, for instance with the USA, Canada and the European Union. It has thus established itself as an important link between South America and North America.

Worsening environmental degradation resulting from the rapid growth of the economy and population in recent decades is a major challenge for Mexico. In urban centres in particular, these major environmental problems are affecting people and economic development alike. Nevertheless, Mexico has comparatively progressive environmental legislation in certain areas, as well as policies and strategies aimed at improving the environmental situation.

GIZ is assisting the Mexican Government in achieving its environmental and energy policy objectives, with a focus on the following thematic areas:

  • Sustainable energy (renewable energies and energy efficiency)
  • Urban-industrial environmental management (solid waste and contaminated site management)
  • Biodiversity
  • Climate change

In addition, lessons learned together are being transferred to other countries in the region through triangular cooperation.
