Mexico has shown international leadership in developing legislation, policy and programmes to support its transition to a low carbon economy. A general law on climate change was recently approved and a long term climate change strategy is under implementation, together with a multi-stakeholder approach to develop an institutional MRV framework to support NAMAs and LEDS.
The institutional MRV framework being implemented aims to go beyond simply tracking emission reductions and includes a set of measures, systems and registries to perform policy evaluation, institutional strengthening and ultimately support decision-making. Currently the MRV framework in Mexico consists of several mechanisms, including laws, reporting rules, estimation methodologies, and coordination among different institutions of the public and private sector.
These mechanisms continue to be developed and continuously improved and currently serve as a good example of progress towards a comprehensive national MRV framework.
