Vision Statement

The fight against climate change for sustainable and harmonious development with nature on the basis of management systems life is present in this vision.

Construction of a climate system based on responsibility to Mother Earth, the culture of life and the full realization of humanity in their holistic development, humanizing the economy, surpassing the simplistic approach to de-carbonization of the economy.

Planned Nature-based Action in Adaptation Plan

Consolidation of agroforestry systems.

Transition to semi-intensive systems of livestock management and integrated management of agroforestry and silviculture techniques.

Strengthening community based stewardship in forest management and farming systems.

Reduction of vulnerabilities in agricultural, fisheries, and agro-forestry systems of production.

Measures of agricultural and livestock production insurance to include additional conservation actions, making resilient agricultural and forestry production systems.

Restoration of vegetation cover (trees, grasslands, wetlands and others) to prevent erosion and reduce damage due to adverse climatic events.

Restoration and recovery of degraded soils and forests.

Conservation of areas with high environmental functions.

Planned Nature-based Action in Adaptation Plan

Resilience has been achieved through the strengthening of environmental functions and the productive capacities of agricultural and agroforestry systems.

Timber and non-timber production has increased by 40%, doubling food production from the integrated management of forest and agricultural systems in 2030.

Increased forest areas with integrated and sustainable community management approaches with 16.9 million hectares in 2030, in reference to 3.1 million hectares by 2010.

Strengthened environmental functions (carbon capture and storage, organic matter and soil fertility, biodiversity conservation and water availability) in about 29 million hectares by 2030.
Contribution to Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth of 5.4% in 2030, boosted by agricultural and forestry production complementary to conservation.

Reducing extreme poverty to zero in the population dependent on forests by 2030, based on approximately 350 thousand people by 2010.
Joint mitigation and adaptation capacity has increased in areas covered by forests, agricultural and forestry systems from 0.35 units in 2010 to 0.78 in 2030, as measured by the Index of Sustainable Forest Life, achieving productivity and conservation systems that are both complementary and resilient.

Community forest management has increased sevenfold in the area of forest management in 2030.
Increased reforestation by 6 million hectares by 2030.
Integrated and sustainable management of forests has strengthened through the management of timber and non-timber products in an integrated and sustainable manner.
