Policy development and communication strategies aimed at improving air quality in the Metropolitan Area of the Valley of Mexico -2006

2006

Abstract

Due to high levels of air pollution that were still present in the Metropolitan Area of the Valley of Mexico (ZMVM acronym in Spanish), it was necessary to develop a second phase of measures to protect the population from the derivative effects of exposure to: ne particles (PM2.5), ozone (O3) and toxic substances, not only during atmospheric contingencies, but through continuous exposure. The Mario Molina Center proposed nine measures aimed at: 1) encouraging vehicle renewal and simultaneously reducing fine particles and ozone precursors, 2) directly reducing emission of volatile organic compounds in point and area sources, and 3) improving the Air Quality Management and the Atmospheric Contingency Program.
