The Brookings Institution, Tec de Monterrey (ITESM), the Institute of the Americas and the center launched the U.S.-Mexico Climate Change Agenda Working Group in 2021 with the goal of identifying specific areas of shared interest and cooperation between the U.S. and Mexico towards the COP 26 climate conference in Glasgow.

This informal binational working group brings together Mexican and American experts to discuss five of the most pressing issues underlying the climate crisis and how the two nations might work together to respond to that crisis among these topics:

  • Short-Lived Climate Pollutants
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Environmental Justice, Adaptation and Nature-Based Solutions
  • Climate and Finance
  • Renewable Power Development

As a final product, the working group drafted a report consisting of a white paper for each topic covered with actionable recommendations and references to specific resources geared towards U.S. and Mexican officials.
