Mexico Wastewater Biogas Recovery Initiative

Government agencies in Mexico are working to reduce methane emissions from wastewater treatment plants. The effort includes documenting the results of pre-feasibility studies, technical training, and sharing technical expertise with high-level decision-makers.


Naucalpan de Juárez, Mexico – Improving Waste Management Practices and Reducing Methane Emissions

Naucalpan de Juárez, Mexico analyzed the environmental benefits of a mechanical and biological waste treatment facility. The analysis suggests significant reductions in short-lived climate pollutant emissions, including methane emissions, are possible.


Latin America and Caribbean BioE-CoP

The Bioenergy Community of Practice (BioE-CoP) is a peer-to-peer learning network that advances the development of bioenergy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, increase the use of fossil fuel alternatives, and support sustainable development goals in Latin America and the Caribbean.


Final Regulation Guidelines for the Prevention and Integral Control of Methane Emissions from the Hydrocarbon Sector

In November 2018, Mexico put into effect the regulation “Guidelines for the Prevention and Integral Control of Methane Emissions from the Hydrocarbon Sector” to significantly reduce methane emissions.


International Collaboration to Address Methane Emissions

Environment and Climate Change Canada is working to establish collaborative relationships with several international partners, including Vietnam, Senegal, Côte d’Ivoire, Chile, China, and Mexico.

Interested national governments may request to become Partners in the Global Methane Initiative at any time. Governments that join GMI have the opportunity to participate in the work of the GMI Steering Committee, which guides the work of the initiative as a whole, as well as any GMI subcommittees that may be of interest: biogas, coal mines, and oil and gas.

If you're interested in becoming a partner country, send us an email.

The Project Network is a growing community of private-sector entities, financial institutions, and other governmental and non-governmental organizations with an interest in methane abatement, recovery, and use projects.

Project Network members are actively involved in the Initiative and are critical to its success. Working with countries who are Global Methane Initiative (GMI) Partners, Project Network members can galvanize action, setting the stage for methane reduction projects.
