California-Mexico 2030 Summit

Turning Climate Challenges into Opportunities

The California-Mexico 2030 Summit is organized around the transition to a sustainable and climate-resilient binational economy. The Summit follows the recent celebration of the bicentennial in diplomatic relations between the United States and Mexico, providing an opportunity to reflect on the current state of the binational relationship and to identify key strategic areas for collaboration to address the most relevant shared challenges in this decade.


The Summit will showcase existing research projects that UC experts are developing in partnership with their Mexican peers and help identify existing knowledge gaps. It will also provide opportunities for engagement with other stakeholders—including policymakers from the California and Mexican state governments as well as the US and Mexican federal governments—to discuss emerging policy challenges and design research programs that can offer innovative solutions
