States and Cities with Climate Initiatives, case study: Chihuahua’s Metropolitan Area -2013
The Mario Molina Center (MMC) prepared a study entitled “States and cities with climate initiatives, case study: Chihuahua’s Metropolitan Area”, in which we carried out a comprehensive analysis aimed at identifying opportunity areas for the urban zone comprising the metropolis. We evaluated key issues for sustainable urban development: metropolitan coordination, efficient urban mobility, housing, urban infrastructure, risk to extreme weather events, and integrated water and solid waste management.
Among the most significant findings, what stands out is the absence of a metropolitan coordination which guides current and future development of the area. Therefore, it’s imperative to achieve a metropolitan management framework which ensures joint efforts between the three municipalities that make up the metropolis, and which also contains a long-term vision.
