MÉRIDA, Yucatan, (December 18, 2021).- One of Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s campaign promises was the decentralization of the federal public administration, and precisely to fulfill this purpose it has been reported that the Ministry of the Environment and Natural Resources (Semarnat) has already begun its official move to the city from Mérida, Yucatán, to start operating in 2022.

The new Semarnat headquarters will have its new location in the Conagua Regional Hydrometeorological Center, where the Yucatan Peninsula Basin Agency is located, at Calle 59 B number 238, Fraccionamiento Yucalpetén, to the west of the city.

The former headquarters of the federal body was in CDMX, in the 22-story building on Avenida Ejército Nacional 223, Miguel Hidalgo mayor’s office. This was occupied in 2016, purchased for an amount of 3,391 million pesos.

The current secretary, María Luisa Albores, will arrive with her closest circle of public servants to be able to complete the decentralization of the body. The plan to move Semarnat to Mérida had already been announced some time ago.

However, this is not the first time that a head of the Semarnat arrives to inaugurate the new headquarters, since at the time, Josefa González Blanco had already settled in the city, until the controversy in which he stopped a plane of A commercial airline to wait for her for a delay, caused her to have to leave her position and the process had to be delayed.
