On 7 July 2020 the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (SEMARNAT) published the Environment and Natural Resources Sector Programme for 2020 to 2024, which is the nationwide policy on the environment (Environment Policy).
The Environment Policy sets out five main objectives that will serve as a guide for all other federal and local environmental policies, strategies and decisions:
In order to achieve these objectives, the Environment Policy considers various strategies to be implemented throughout the federal, local and municipal administrations. Paramount among these are:
Considering that the Environment Policy's strategies and goals focus on water resources and climate change, additional regulations from the National Waters Commission, the National Ecology and Climate Change Institute and SEMARNAT can be reasonably expected in terms of water and wastewater usage, forestry land use and harnessing, greenhouse gas emissions control and reporting and waste management.
Finally, the Environment Policy includes various methods for determining the progress made on the implementation of its strategies and achieving the goals set for 2024; thus, changes to the related administrative provisions, regulations and rules can be expected across various environmental activities and persons and companies should pay close attention to the elaboration, modification and enactment of such provisions.
