Policy-making environment

In the last decade, environmental sustainability has been recognised at federal level as a key dimension of Mexico’s development. There have also been significant advances in environmental policy integration. This chapter reviews the main strategies and initiatives that were launched during the decade in the areas of sustainable development and environmental management. It examines Mexico’s environmental governance and the mechanisms in place to improve horizontal and vertical co-ordination. Other environmental governance issues examined include: enforcement and compliance; mechanisms to evaluate the environmental impact of public policies; and promoting environmental democracy, through better access to information, improved public participation and access to justice.
