The Under2 coalition is a global community of ambitious subnational governments publicly committed to deep long-term decarbonisation and supporting the climate goal of the Paris Agreement to limit the global average temperature rise well below 2˚C.

The coalition joins the signatories of the Under2 MOU, a public commitment by governments to reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 80% to 95% compared to 1990 levels, or 2 metric tons per capita per year carbon dioxide equivalent, by the year 2050.

Project Biodiversity and Sustainable Agrosilvopastoral Livestock Landscapes - BIOPASOS (SAGARPA - CONABIO - SDR - CATIE)
Description

The objective is to strengthen the capacities of target audiences to conserve biodiversity and ecosystem services; create an institutional and policy framework that allows the promotion of agrosilvopastoral practices that improve productivity, quality of family life and reduce climate vulnerability in livestock landscapes of the states of Campeche, Chiapas and Jalisco. Led by CATIE, IICA, SDR, and the Technological Institute of Chiná, its objective is to work on the integration of agrosilvopastoral systems in livestock landscapes in localities of interest in the municipalities of Champotón, Escárcega and Calakmul.

To achieve this, the project will implement an intervention model based on the implementation of agrosilvopastoral systems and good livestock practices. The intervention will be carried out at different levels and scales, all necessary for the conservation of biodiversity.

In addition, BioPaSOS will generate information that will make informed and timely decisions for the design of public policy instruments that integrate elements of sustainability, reduction of climate effects and that will facilitate exploring the options available for the marketing of differentiated products, thereby contributing to strengthen the participation of the livestock sector in value chains. This strengthening also includes the promotion of partnerships with actors from the private sector, academia and other partners.
