General

The project aims to improve the livelihoods and incomes of 18,000 extremely poor forest households in Campeche, Chiapas and Oaxaca located in the southern states of Mexico. Special attention is given to strengthen the capacity of the communities to better manage their natural resources, enhance conservation practices such as promoting increase of vegetation cover and put in place mechanisms to cope with impact of climate change. Land and natural resource governance related interventions included territorial planning and the generation of legal documentation giving more land tenure security to the agrarian public through workshops, courses and technical assistance.
