OECD Territorial Reviews: Valle de México, Mexico

image of 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.

Executive summary

The Metropolitan Zone of the Valle de México (Zona Metropolitana del Valle de México, ZMVM) is the economic, financial, political and cultural centre of Mexico and thus has profound impacts on national performance. It is home to 17% of the national population and contributes almost a fourth (23%) of national GDP.
