U.S. Special Envoy for Climate Change Dr. Jonathan Pershing and a small delegation will travel May 18 – 19 to Mexico City for meetings with Mexican officials on areas of clean energy, reducing emissions and adapting to climate change impacts.

Special Envoy Pershing’s trip follows soon after the United States and Mexico joined more than 170 nations in signing the Paris Agreement at the April 22nd UN Signing Ceremony in New York City. The visit precedes the planned North American Leaders Summit, an annual leader-level meeting between key U.S., Canadian and Mexican officials, slated for this summer in Ottawa.
