Oaxaca Mexico

The Dedicated Mechanism (MDE) for Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities in Mexico is a special initiative of the Forest Investment Program (FIP), one of the three programs of the Strategic Climate Fund (SCF). The MDE supports efforts by developing countries to address the underlying causes of deforestation and forest degradation and to overcome the barriers that have impeded past efforts.

The goal of the MDE is to strengthen the capacities of people who depend on forests to participate in processes related to REDD + at the local, national, and international levels, in the selected states, in such a way that facilitates the address of the determinants of deforestation and degradation of forest lands and the implementation of good practices in different productive sectors, in order to catalyze the change towards a model of sustainable rural development low in CO2 emissions.

PartnersIndigenous Peoples and Local Communities of the states of Oaxaca, Yucatan Peninsula and Jalisco, Rainforest Alliance and the World Bank.
