Mexico has achieved a high degree of decentralisation in public services, but the Mexican fiscal
federal system has important shortcomings. States and municipalities have become heavily dependent on
federal transfers to finance a growing share of public spending.
Las Revisiones de Reforma Regulatoria de México identifican resultados de las políticas que el gobierno de México debería considerar para establecer una cultura de “gobierno entero” para la política de mejora regulatoria.
This review of Mexico identifies policy findings that the government of Mexico should consider to establish a “whole-of-government” culture for regulatory improvement policy.
Mexico enfrenta una amplia variedad de amenazas naturales de manera regular, las cuales incluyen sismos, tormentas tropicales e inundaciones. A través de los años, el Sistema Nacional de Protección Civil ha mejora sus medidas de preparación tanto insituticonales como operacionales para el manejo de eventos perturbadores.
Mexico regularly faces a wide range of natural hazards, including earthquakes, tropical storms and floods. Over the years, the National Civil Protection System has improved its institutional and operational preparedness to manage these disruptive events. But more can be done to avoid future losses and at the same time support sustainable economic development.
The OECD Review of the Mexican National Civil Protection System looks at the co-ordination of multiple actors across central government, public and private industries, and state and local governments for the effective management of hurricanes, earthquakes and floods.
Mexico’s river basins are under severe water stress. The quality of rivers, lakes and aquifers is declining and floods, droughts, and hurricanes are more frequent. These are some of the alerts signaled in OECD’s Making Water Reform Happen in Mexico.
The report provides evidence-based assessment and policy recommendations in support of Mexico’s water reform. It analyses implementation bottlenecks and identifies good practices in four key areas considered as essential drivers for change in the water sector of Mexico: multi-level and river basin governance; economic efficiency and financial sustainability; and regulatory functions for water supply and sanitation.
Is growth possible in all OECD regions? Evidence suggests that it is. This report argues that helping underdeveloped regions to catch up with more developed ones will have a positive impact on a country’s national growth overall, and that such growth helps to build a fairer society, in which no region’s citizens are left behind.
These country notes detail the fiscal situation to date, the consolidation needs, and the commitments and intentions of governments in 31 OECD countries in the aftermath of the economic crisis.
