Project Description
Based on the Memorandum of Understanding between the IDB and the Selva Negra Foundation, the opportunity to support the Ahuisculco Ejido was identified to reduce deforestation and increase the resilience in the Sierra de Ahuisculco. The Sierra de Ahuisculco is located approximately 40 km from Guadalajara, Jalisco, an area that suffers a strong deforestation pressure as well as a process of forest degradation and severe soil. It should be emphasized that the activities of this technical cooperation will allow the reduction of landslides and the protection of the areas of environmental importance around Guadalajara's metropolitan area. The expansion of the urban spot in this area has had severe consequences on its environment and requires better planning to strengthen this biological corridor, which represents an area of distribution for 1,000 species of flora and fauna (with species in threatened status, danger of extinction and special protection).
Investment Description
  • Inter-American Development Bank (IADB)
The 0.15 investment is through the form of non-reimbursable technical cooperation.
