Description The Climate Action Plan for Municipalities Programme (PACMUN - Plan de Acción Climática Municipal) in Mexico helps to build effective synergies between local and national stakeholders to encourage a public policy framework on climate change mitigation and adaptation actions. PACMUN was launched by ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability with the technical support of the National Insitute of Ecology and Climate Change (INECC) and financed by the British Embassy in Mexico for the periods 2011-2015. During this time, a "Guide for the Elaboration of a Plan for Municipal Climate Action" was developed in the participating municipalities. In the first phase of the project (2012) more than 30 pilot municipalities were assisted, in the second phase 2013-2015 it was 250 municipalities, covering a bit more than 10% of all municipalities of the country.
Objectives The Mexican Program is developing Municipal Climate Action Plans aiming to build effective synergies between the local and national stakeholders

to encourage a public policy framework on climate change mitigation and adaptation actions with and active civil society and Council engagement to design a community sustainable development. PACMUN finds innovative and low cost effective solutions to environmental management problems in order to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG). The raising awareness about climate change between the municipality stakeholders will facilitate the planning actions on climate change through a methodology designed to identify, analyze, evaluate and prioritize mitigation actions for municipalities and the creation of public policies that allow the development of strategic actions and sources of financing for the implementation of sustainable mitigation and adaptation measures.
