Some countries in Latin America are already taking the first steps to promoting green growth. Costa Rica aims to be carbon neutral by 2021, the Mexican government has started to reform the energy sector to make the transition towards clean energy, and Chile is currently taking steps to implement its Green Growth Strategy.
