Regional and Sectorial Strategies for Low-Carbon Sustainable Development in Mexico. Cities with Climate Initiatives: Oaxaca -2013
Oaxaca is one of the states with the biggest potential for renewable energy use, such as wind, solar, micro-hydro and biogas. These options may not only be incorporated into the National Grid of electricity production, but may also be considered a mainstay for the development of a low carbon economy. These actions likewise represent an opportunity for greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation, which, coupled with other circumstances in the transportation, waste and livestock sectors, will contribute to improve the quality of life of the state´s population, both in urban and rural areas. The development of the state’s climate action program and a comprehensive program on air quality may contribute to address strategies, actions and resources to achieve this improvement.
