DESCRIPTION
The project aimed at strengthening technical and institutional capacity to respond at a local level to the fight against climate change; at reducing pressure on watershed forests through the promotion of sustainable development, including the reconversion of productive and agricultural activities and community forestry; and developing and implementing a mechanism for access to international carbon finance, REDD +, in line with the national strategy, in two poor Mexican regions. The project contributed to the creation and development of six inter-municipality associations to promote and finance sustainable rural development tackling deforestation and improving water resources management (REDD+ actions with climate change impact). The project is successfully completed.
RESULTS
  • Creation and consolidation of six inter-municipality associations covering five river D28, eleven RAMSAR sites and protected natural areas and for the bio-cultural reserve of Puuc.
  • Institutional agreements among these associations and federal ministries to coordinate public programmes in this field.
  • Elaboration and implementation of local REDD+ land strategies to paliate deforestation and forest degradation.
  • Elaboration of municipal action plans for fighting against climate change.
  • Pilot local REDD+ D28projects for sustainable forest management.
  • Elaboration of participative investment programmes for emissions reduction.
