OECD Territorial Reviews: Valle de México, Mexico

This review finds that while Mexico has taken important steps in addressing the urban challenges in the Valle de México, Mexico’s largest metropolitan area, there is a need for major metropolitan governance reform.  Serious urban governance failings are inhibiting adequate responses to critical urban development priorities - regeneration, access to adequate housing, reliable and safe public transport, and environmental protection. Several measures are currently being implemented. However, these tools and reforms will not produce the desired solutions to urban problems in the absence of metropolitan thinking, strategic regional planning, and improved co-ordination and collaboration across levels of government.

This chapter provides an overview of characteristics of the Metropolitan Zone of the Valle de México. It begins by outlining the extent of the metropolitan zone, which includes the Federal District and municipalities of the State of Mexico and the state of Hidalgo and the administrations involved in its governance. It then focuses on the metropolitan area’s demographic and economic development and discusses the social and distributional characteristics. In line with the focus of this study, two sections consider housing and transport and environmental aspects in depth.
