MELERO HERNANDEZ, Argelia; QUINTERO NUNEZ, Margarito  and  GALINDO DUARTE, Moisés. Análisis de las estrategias de mitigación y adaptación del sector transporte en la ciudad de Mexicali. Estud. front [online]. 2013, vol.14, n.28, pp.79-105. ISSN 2395-9134.

The aim of this paper is to develop an analysis of mitigation and adaptation strategies in the transport sector in the city of Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico. Based on the methodology of the Programs of Action on Climate Change (PACC), we analyzed the Mexicali emissions inventory and generated a diagnosis. Once we analyzed the current situation, we studied mitigation strategies such as Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), the smog check, new importation legislation for used cars, biofuel production, the promotion of lower-emission vehicles and urban planning. On adaptation strategies vehicle recycling and the use of non-motorized transport were studied as an alternative of sustainable mobility.

Keywords : mitigation and adaptation strategies; Mexicali; ground transportation; climate change; air quality.
