Project Description

According to the World Bank, the development objective of the Sustainable Productive Landscapes Project for Mexico is to strengthen sustainable management of productive landscapes and increase economic opportunities for rural producers in priority areas of Mexico. The project will be implemented across seven regions (Jalisco, Chihuahua-Durango, Coahuila, Sierra Madre Oriental, Usumacinta Basin, Campeche and Quintana) that were found to be representative of priority areas for biodiversity conservation, ecological connectivity, land and forestry management activities, climate vulnerability and anthropogenic threats (land degradation, deforestation, and forest degradation) ecosystem services, and relevance of agricultural production activities.

The project has the following three components:

(i) capacity strengthening for sustainable landscape management seeks to strengthen national and local capacities to support the sustainable management of productive landscapes in the selected project areas. This components will support activities through two subcomponents, one focusing on the enabling environment and the other on building capacity at the local level

(ii) investments in biodiversity-friendly and climate-smart production systems aims at enhancing opportunities for economically viable business investments around the sustainable use of biodiversity and the establishment of biodiversity-friendly and climate-smart production

(iii) project management, monitoring, and evaluation will be used for the management of the project. Global Environment Facility (GEF) funds will be used for the operation of the Project Coordinating Unit and the Regional Technical Units, as well as the overall monitoring and evaluation of project activities, including the mid-term and final evaluations.
