Changing Climates in North American Politics

This chapter explores the evolution of climate change politics in Mexico, placing special emphasis on underlying structural conditions and the short-term policy events that govern Mexican climate politics past, present, and future. It presents a brief introduction to the climate and energy context in Mexico. The key features are found to be how the country's emissions are influenced by energy-intensive economic growth; that there are key actors in the federal government, academia, and the private sector who are active proponents of action in climate change; and that the environmental groups and the local and state governments are often absent in environmental change debates. The chapter also examines the five important periods in the evolution of Mexican climate change politics, and, finally, also focuses on the roles of private-sector and civil society groups in driving the federal government action on climate change.

Keywords:   climate change, Mexico, politics, private sector, civil society groups
