Working Papers from Universidad Iberoamericana, Department of Economics

Abstract: In this article we describe a case study of policy challenges for the implementation of a public policy which generates social, economic and environmental benefits simultaneously and thus achieving climate change mitigation. In particular, we analyze the creation of the National Energy Efficiency Project for Municipal Street Lighting in Mexico. We present a technical and economic analysis which identifies profitable investment opportunities yielding average IRR of 63% and a capture of 15,929 carbon dioxide equivalent tons. We describe the obstacles faced by the stakeholders in the implementation of the project; as well as its performance up to date. This article presents evidence of how it is possible to implement measures contributing to sustainable development by considering elements of social, economic and environmental efficiency while coping with its policy constraints.
