MERIDA — Mayor Mauricio Vila Dosal announced that Merida was recognized for actions undertaken around sustainability, such as the Municipal Urban Development Plan; the Green Infrastructure Plan; the Municipal Action Plan for Climate Change; the Master Plan for Sustainable Urban Mobility; the accompaniment of UN-Habitat in the Initiative of Prosperous Cities and the Adhesion to the Pact of Milan.
Vila Dosal explained that, financed by the European Union, the activities of the IUC program will support the achievement of political objectives both at the local level and related to important international agreements on sustainable urban development and climate change like the Urban Agenda, the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement.
The IUC program will work with major partners like international financial institutions to connect decision-makers in cities to potential funders. In this way, businesses from countries of the European Union will be important partners for the activities of the cooperation components of sustainable urban development and innovation for local and regional development.
Vila has presented initiatives for future projects, such as the installation of an urban observatory to monitor and evaluate the achievement of the objectives proposed in the Municipal Urban Development Program; a pilot project for urban regeneration that aims to strengthen management capacities to establish projects, with the participation of key urban agents and innovative financing schemes; and an urban laboratory to measure conditions of pedestrian mobility and air quality, the quantification of carbon emissions, and the incorporation of environmental criteria in local construction regulations.
