City Lab Saltillo at the Sustainable Cities Meeting in Mexico City
An event to promote climate action in Mexico
The Sustainable Cities Meeting was convened by the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ) Mexico and the International Climate Initiative (IKI). It seeks to promote a space for the exchange of innovative solutions for climate action and urban resilience. Fostering the cooperation and synergy between the public and private sectors, civil society, academia and youth to strengthen public action in Mexico is also a central goal.
MGI and City Lab Saltillo as examples of sustainable urban transformation
The MGI pilot project in Saltillo “Restoration and Integration of Blue-Green Infrastructure” integrates natural and semi-natural elements in its design and is the result of studying the city with the Morgenstadt methodology. It is based on quantitative analysis, interviews, and workshops with experts from the public, private and academic sector. This ensures that the project is adapted to local needs and accepted by the community.
Nature-based solutions integrated into the design bring environmental, hydric, and recreational benefits. Thus, the MGI pilot project is contributing to urban resilience and the mitigation of the effects of climate change in the city of Saltillo.
