Jurisdictional Strategies & Investment Plans

Campeche

State Investment Plans: Towards strengthening REDD+ Implementation

The proposal aimed to implement the Campeche Jurisdictional REDD+ Strategy to address deforestation with short- and medium-term impact. The first goal was to mainstream the REDD+ agenda into other government sectors, such as finance and rural development. The second goal focused on improving the capacity of local actors to and local governance in reducing deforestation.

Outcomes:

  • Establishment of intersectoral coordination agreements for fire prevention and firefighting between federal, state and municipal institutions;
  • Implemented the Campeche State Fire Management Program (PEMFC), including a training process for extension agents to disseminate knowledge about firefighting and aimed at strengthening community leadership;
  • The implementation of the PEMFC contributes directly to the reduction of emissions from deforestation caused by fires;
  • Consolidating environmental management units by developing three Local Ecological Management Plans (POELs), updating two, building capacity and generating recommendations to ensure that the POELs are incorporated into municipal public policy.
