Specific issues addressed and anticipated impact

As a state government we are trying to attack all the posible fronts that the Pandemic is afecting. The region is afected by violence and crime long time ago, but with this contingency the levels of insecurity and crime will rise. In order to prevent that, we are trying to generate jobs, food sources and special supports for the ones in extreme need and the ones that lost their sources of regular income. That is why, we are focusing on an approach more integrated in health, food, vacancy, tax benefits for job maintenance.

Organisations/institutions involved

The private sector, the civil society, the public sector, everyone has been considerated in this Plan.

Potential issues

I think the main challenge for every state within Mexico is the lack of guidance and support from the federal government as well as empaty and equal transfer of financial resources its necessary so the state and the local government can keep operational all the programs and politicies that face this contingency.
