The National Worker’s Housing Fund (INFONAVIT in Spanish) is Mexico’s largest housing provident fund established in 1972. It presently operates a dual mission of providing housing finance and pensions to salaried, formal-sector workers. One of its main goals is to build strategic alliances with key actors in society, in order to contribute to economic and human development of workers and their families. For that purpose, in recent years, the Institute has renewed its strategic orientation to increase worker’s overall net worth and quality of life.


The Ministry of Agrarian, Territorial and Urban Development (SEDATU) is Mexico’s central body for urban development. As such, it is responsible for formulating policy on urban planning and housing and coordinating its implementation in co-operation with local and municipal authorities.

The Federal District, or Mexico City, is the capital of Mexico and seat of the federal powers of the union. Mexico City is the country's largest city as well as its most important political, cultural, educational and financial centre. The Federal District together with 59 municipalities of the State of Mexico and 1 from the State of Hidalgo forms the metropolitan area of the Valle de Mexico, which is the most populous and densely inhabited metropolitan zone in the country with over 20 million inhabitants, and is the third largest among 275 OECD metropolitan areas. Mexico City is currently celebrating its 190 years of existence.


 Logo OECD The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an international organisation of 34 countries that accept the principles of representative democracy and free-market economy. The OECD provides the preeminent policy forum where governments compare policy experiences, identify good practice, and co-ordinate domestic and international policies. It applies its wealth of information to help governments foster prosperity and fight poverty through economic growth and financial stability. It helps ensure the environmental implications of economic and social development are taken into account.

Mutual examination by governments plays a pivotal role at the OECD, which facilitates a multilateral review process through which the performance of individual countries is monitored by their peers. Discussions at the OECD level sometimes evolve into negotiations where OECD countries agree on rules of the game for international co-operation which can culminate in formal agreements by countries, for example on combating bribery or the regulation of capital movements.

In recent years, the organisation has provided a forum for countries to discuss numerous key issues relevant to international negotiations on climate change (e.g. emissions trading schemes, flexibility mechanisms, deforestation incentives, techno‌logy diffusion), and a wide range of climate change-related initiatives are underway.
