We have the solutions for climate change. But how can we make sure governments across the globe act quickly to embrace them?
Through the Road to Paris campaign, The Climate Reality Project is mobilizing international public support to make world leaders commit to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the lead-up to the UN’s climate negotiations in Paris this December.
And already, several key countries have announced strong national commitments, setting the stage for action on a global scale and setting an example for others around the world.
One of these crucial players is Mexico. In March, Mexico became the first developing country to announce an intended nationally determined contribution (INDC) to reduce its global warming pollution, joining global efforts to create astrong emissions reductions agreement in Paris. Under the terms of this INDC, the country will cut its greenhouse gas emissions by 22 percent and its black carbon (soot) by 51 percent below a calculated business-as-usual scenario by 2030.
To build support for these commitments and continued climate action across Latin America, Climate Reality is making a permanent home in Mexico. This April, Climate Reality Leaders, nonprofit representatives, university officials, and civil society influencers all came together to welcome The Climate Reality Project Mexico and Latin America as an official branch office of The Climate Reality Project.

Then, do your part to ensure a strong agreement on climate change – tell world leaders to take climate action now.
Thanks for your commitment to our climate,
