Special Climate Change Program 2014-2018 Mexico
The Special Program on Climate Change2014-2018 (PECC, in Spanish) is one of the planning instruments of the Climate Change General Law (LGCC) and is aligned to the National Development Plan and related programs, as well as to the National Strategy for Climate Change (ENCC), 10-20-40 Vision (ENCC) and to the sector programs of the 14 Secretariats.
The following Secretariats took part in the development of the PECC 2014-2018: Environment and Natural Resources; Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food; Health; Communications and Transportation; Economy; Tourism; Social Development; State Department; Naval; Energy; Public Education; Treasury and Public Credit; Foreign Affairs; and Rural, Land, and Urban Development.
The PECC 2014-2018 has the objective of reducing the vulnerability of the populations and the productive sectors, as well as to preserve and protect ecosystems and environmental services, and increase resistance of the strategic infrastructure to the adverse impacts of climate change. It also represents the contribution of the Federal Public Administration for the 2014-2018 period to meet the objective set for 2020 of reducing by 30% the Greenhouse Gases (GHG) with respect to a trend scenario. To reach the objectives set by Mexico on climate change mitigation and adaptation, however, it is essential to have the contribution of all states and municipalities, the private sector, and the society at large.
