Urban Planning Scenarios: Mexico City Metropolitan Area -2015
As part of the Sustainable Cities research line, the Centro Mario Molina (CMM), together with Calthorpe
Analytics, the ITDP, CTS Embarq, and Fehr & Peers, with the support of CONACYT, have adapted Calthorpe Analytics’ RapidFire model to operate in Mexico. This tool allowed us to analyze the implications of various urban policy instruments and to estimate their impacts on critical environmental, economic, and social variables. As a case study, the model was applied to the Mexico City Metropolitan Area.
