The Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) is a treaty-based international, inter-governmental organization dedicated to supporting and promoting strong, inclusive and sustainable economic growth in developing countries and emerging economies. To learn more please visit about GGGI web page.
GGGI has a diverse portfolio of programs in developing countries around the world. These in-country programs, together with global products and services, focus on delivering results through an integrated approach of evidence-based green growth planning and implementation aligned to countries’ development priorities. The organization also focuses on knowledge development and management... activities which build a strong theoretical and empirical basis for green growth, while providing concrete options and guidance for policymakers; as well as building the conditions for public and private green infrastructure investments.

Mexico’s development priorities have evolved in the context of global and domestic changes, resulting in a significant push to transform the public life to achieve a greater benefit for all. This intent is ingrained in the National Development Plan 2019-2024, which serves as an umbrella for sectoral and institutional plans and a key tool for cooperation fostering inclusive development. The goal of its political, social, and economic pillars is to bring the nation toward prosperity, security, sustainability; thus, green growth and a low-carbon society are key development objectives for the country.

Over the last decade, the Global Green Growth Institute has consolidated its role as a trusted advisor to Mexico’s federal and subnational governments, actively working shoulder-to-shoulder with key counterparts to establish a strong green growth foundation in the country. In 2014, the Mexican Senate ratified the Agreement for the Establishment of GGGI, which signals Mexico’s commitment to green growth and its recognition of the shared value of this development paradigm in cooperation with GGGI. In 2021, the Country Agreement between GGGI and Mexico was signed between the Mexican Foreign Affairs Secretariat and GGGI; hence, formally recognizing GGGI as one the country’s key partnering international intergovernmental organizations.

Between 2019 and 2021, the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit of Mexico (SHCP for its acronym in Spanish) as National Designated Authority (NDA) of the Green Climate Fund (GCF), through the GCF Readiness Programme, has received funding to support activities that enhance and strengthen Mexico’s climate finance architecture to mobilize public and private, national, and international, climate financing for mitigation and adaptation projects and programs in the country.

GGGI has worked closely with the CNBV to support the efforts of Mexico’s financial regulator-the CNBV-on greening finance through the development of capacities and increase knowledge within the commission itself and with its regulated entities. The project has entailed developing knowledge products on the integration and disclosure of environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards; developing recommendations to integrate climate-related risks in financial products/services for specific vulnerable groups; and by providing capacity building and skills enhancement for CNBV staff and members of the Sustainable Finance Committee.
