Problem DescriptionGiven the urban growth experienced by CDMX, resilience building must transcend political and administrative boundaries. Maintaining a regional view and coordination at all levels are key to building resilience, especially on priorities such as water and integrated mobility management. In the vision of this pillar, Megalopolis and the Metropolitan Area of the Valley of Mexico (ZMVM) work together under a regional institutional framework on key issues to drive a common agenda and ensure shared responsibility in building resilience. Infrastructure projects with a regional impact, such as the New International Airport of Mexico City (NAICM) currently under development, are an opportunity to work more closely on resilience efforts and move toward a collaborative regional agenda.
- Foster resilient infrastructure projects that contribute to the development of the region
- Reduce pollution in the region (air, water, solid waste, and chemical waste, among others)
- Implement Water Forest Initiative
- Drive and support regional projects that contribute to resilience
- Drive and creation of a national resilience agenda with Mexican cities belonging to 100RC Network
- Foster resilience integration in regional programs
"Foster regional collaboration" is 1 of 5 strategic pillars of Mexico City's Resilience Strategy. The city faces resilience challenges on environmental, social, and economic issues, given its geographic situation, history of great social-environmental transformation, and social context. Having once been a lake, the city has become a megacity, one of the most populous on Earth. Rapid urban expansion and soaring population growth in the last few decades have added to the problems resulting from insufficient long-term planning and weak metropolitan and megalopolitan coordination, making it difficult to monitor and track important regional issues such as water management based on a long-term sustainability perspective.
