Mexico has ambitious Net-Zero targets which highlights the opportunity to partner with nations around the world – such as the UK – to accelerate emissions reductions.
Connected Places Catapult’s mission is to accelerate the commercialisation of smart cities and transport innovations with a focus on decarbonisation and promotion of global partnerships in these sectors. In partnership with The Business of Cities (TBoC), Connected Places Catapult has developed the City Typologies Tool which analyses the unique innovation-based attributes, inherited systems and assets, and strategic impetus and ambition of 500 cities around the world with a focus on how UK and international expertise may solve global urban innovation challenges.
Working with the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) and three cities across Mexico: Merida, Monterrey and Guadalajara, The Business of Cities and Connected Places Catapult have used the City Typology tool data and interviews to provide an accurate analysis of the urban innovation response of cities to climate issues. In addition, this has enable us to identify potential global solutions to address these challenges with the best impact.
Connected Places Catapult and TBoC has worked across Latin America with support from the FCDO to produce 8 other Net Zero profiles for different cities across the continent. These Include:
- Buenos Aires,
- Panama City and Bucaramanga,
- Santa Marta in Colombia
- Concepcion, and
- Antofogasta in Chile.
We will be launching these Net-Zero profiles on the 28th March at a senior level Hybrid event. You can find more information about the event here.
