Including mangrove forests into REDD+ strategy in Mexico: an integrated approach of social and private sector collaboration

This initiative aims to develop a regional community-based mitigation project in coastal Chiapas, including REDD+ activities for mangrove forests to contribute to national and subnational readiness for REDD. The partnership between USAID-Mexico, the Mexican organization Pronatura Sur and the Bonafont and Livelihoods Network companies seeks to restore and preserve up to 600 ha of mangrove forests on the coast of Chiapas, by developing a market approach to support the increase of the mangrove forests’ carbon stocks and improving the livelihoods of local communities.
