Planned Nature-based Action in Adaptation Plan

Guarantee food security and water access in light of growing climate threats through integral watershed management, biodiversity and land conservation.

Reforest high, medium and low watersheds with special attention to riparian zones and taking into account native species in the area.

Conserve and restore ecosystems in order to increase ecological connectivity of all Natural Protected Areas and other conservation schemes, through biological corridors and sustainable productive activities. This approach will take into account the equitable participation of the population and will have a territorial approach.

Increase carbon capture and strengthen coastal protection with the implementation of a scheme of conservation and recovery of coastal and marine ecosystems such as coral reefs, mangroves, sea grass and dunes.

Substantially increase the Programs of Action and Conservation of Species in order to strengthen the protection of priority species from the negative impacts of climate change.

Planned Nature-based Action in Adaptation Plan

Reach a rate of 0% deforestation by the year 2030.
