Jalisco has a population of 7,979,530 inhabitants. The state's population represents 6.5% of the country's total. It is one of the 6 most biodiverse states of the country, counting on an enormous wealth in natural capital. The trends of economic growth, urbanization and demography of the last years have put pressure on the natural resources stock.

With the purpose of establishing a model for territorial planning at the regional level, a model of local governance has been proposed in Jalisco which aims to contribute to sustainable rural development through various procedures that should be observed at the state level in order to reduce emissions through deforestation and degradation, through the State REDD + Strategy. This model of governance is the Intermunicipal Boards, which are based on the association of municipalities that seek to generate a decentralization of environmental policy and function as a technical agent, which takes the form of a decentralized public body, which has an impact on the territory of the municipalities that comprise it. There are 2,357,236 ha of forests and forests, which represent 57% of the state's forest area.
