Despite facing resource challenges, the State of Baja California, Mexico, has been successful in strengthening its emissions tracking and reduction capacities with the support of the Climate Footprint Project.
The state has successfully formed a cross-sectoral working group to begin integrated climate action planning and update its greenhouse gas inventory. Additionally, it has identified the energy sector as the largest contributor to state emissions and so, by creating a partnership with the State Energy Commission, has been able to obtain the data necessary to compile the inventory.
