Government of Oaxaca
The state of Oaxaca is located geographically in the southern region of Mexico. Its name comes from the Náhuatl word "Huaxyacac", which means about the nose or tip of the gourds, alluding to this arboreal legume of edible seeds that abounds in the Oaxacan territory. Due to this vast territorial extension, the state is divided into 570 municipalities distributed in 8 geographical regions that share certain geographical and socioeconomic characteristics given the great territorial and social complexity. Since 2018, the Government of Oaxaca established a State Council committed to the 2030 Agenda implementation at the state and municipal level.
