Identifying Financing Mechanisms for Environmental Strategies in Mexico City -2011
The present study carries out a budget and cross-section analysis of Mexico City Governments’ environmental policy programs during the 2000-2009 periods. Through a theoretical and practical analysis of international cases, the study also explored economic instruments that serve the dual purpose of reducing environmental externalities in an urban scope while generating resources for the cities’ environment strategies.
Both perspectives converge in a portfolio of public policy proposals, economic instruments and financing mechanisms to ensure the success of environmental programs and actions implemented by the Government of Mexico City.
