Green infrastructure technical standards

Potential climate/ disaster impacts addressed by approach & Justification for approach:

The vast majority of Mexican cities have problems with water, either due to lack of quality and quantity, or flooding and waterlogging caused by heavy rains. Both phenomena are expected to increase in the coming years due to climate change due to the increase in droughts and torrential rain. Thus, technical standards were developed for green infrastructure.

Process of Implementation:

1. Definition of municipalities to be advised and identification of a focal point. 2. Diagnosis of the local legal framework and the approach and main climate risks to which the normative instrument wants to focus. 3. Preparation of the proposed standard. 4. Generation of recommendations and material to socialize the instrument. 5. Guidance on the approval processes of the instrument.
