Early REDD+ Actions
Under Development

Jalisco is considered an early REDD+ action (ATREDD+) and is part of the federal government Emission Reduction Initiative with the FCPF which is based on four pillars: enhancing cross-sectoral coordination, improving land governance, actions to address site-specific drivers of deforestation, and the development of policies and programs.

The ATREDD + Integrated Management in Coastal Basins of Jalisco, has its strength in the potential replicability of a model of local governance, based on the association of municipalities that share a same basin seeking to address challenges of sustainable management at the local level.

This model involves the three orders of government and strengthens local capacities for the integral management of the territory, thus allowing coordinated attention to the agendas of mitigation and adaptation to climate change, promoting activities to stop deforestation and degradation with the co-benefits Conservation of biodiversity and improvement in water supply and quality in the region.

There are currently four governance models (intermunicipal meetings) operating in the Coastal Coastal Region of Jalisco:

Intermunicipal Board of Environment for the Integral Management of the Lower Basin of the River Ayuquila (JIRA)

Inter-municipal Board of the Coahuayana River (JIRCO)

West-Coastal Inter-municipal Board (JISOC)

Inter-municipal Board of the South Coast (JICOSUR)

Within the ATREDD + Coastal Basins of Jalisco, since 2011, the "Special Coastal Coastal Program of the State of Jalisco" has been operated, which is carried out in five basins located in the western part of the State, which corresponds mainly to the Priority land area Chamela-Cabo Corrientes. The overall objective of the program is to address the decline in forest area of ​​the Coastal Basin region in the state of Jalisco, as well as address the degradation of forests and forests, reverse the trend of change in forest land use and thereby contribute to Improve the living conditions of those who live in the region.[4]
