- Implemented by: GIZ, SECTUR, SEMARNAT, CONANP and INECC.
The agreement for the creation and implementation of the Biocultural Corridor of the Center West of Mexico signed on June 22 with the intention of combining efforts, capacities and resources to consolidate the conservation and management of protected natural areas and conservation modalities, as well as the conservation and sustainable use of its ecosystems and biodiversity present in the States of Aguascalientes, Guanajuato, San Luis Potosí, Queretaro, Zacatecas, Nayarit,Jalisco and Michoacán de Ocampo, with the support of the Federal Government, through the National Commission of Protected Natural Areas and the National Commission for the Knowledge and Use of Biodiversity.
The Biocultural Corridor of the Western Center of Mexico has a geographical unit characterized by its wide variety of plants, animals and ecosystems, whose structure and dynamics have been shaped to a greater or lesser extent by the history of land use, a directly associated factor to the diversity of cultural features of this region of the country. Among the objectives of this Corridor is to reconcile the conservation of natural resources with sustainable use.

In 2016, the Ministry of Rural Development modified its operation rules to support the implementation of silvopastoral systems (sustainable livestock), aimed at livestock producers who have a current Agreement for Payment for Environmental Services (PSA) for the forest adjacent to their livestock activity. This year, the concept of support was extended to agroforestry systems and other conservation and/or forest management requirements are included, in addition to the PSA; such as the Sustainable Forest Management Plan, Environmental Management Unit and Voluntary Conservation Area. As part of this effort, the Secretariat signed an Agreement with each of the Inter-municipal Environmental Boards of coastal basins, which are part of the Emissions Reduction Initiative proposed by Mexico before the Cooperative Fund for Forest Carbon (FCPF), whose purpose is to provide technical assistance to people benefiting from the program. The alliance aims to promote sustainable production, increase the resilience of rural producers and capture carbon, as well as conserve carbon stocks.

The Secretariats of Development and Social Integration, Environment and Territorial Development and the Intermunicipal Environment Boards of coastal basins of Jalisco signed agreements in 2016 and 2017 whose objective was to invest in 34 productive projects for the management and sustainable use of resources of women and young people living in areas of high and very high marginalization. The alliance with the social sector also seeks that these supported projects provide certain inputs for the silvopastoral-agroforestry systems promoted by the agricultural sector. In this sense, nurseries were supported by women who produce plants of interest to the community, as well as forage and timber species that can be sold to farmers. Support for young people was also promoted for the production of compost. The foregoing, without excluding other productive activities of women and young people that consider the management and sustainable use of local natural resources. As part of this initiative, the Ministry of Environment and Territorial Development will provide technical assistance to the projects of women and young people benefiting from these resources in each of the Inter-municipal Environmental Boards of coastal basins; which is the area of intervention of the Emissions Reduction Initiative proposed by Mexico before the Cooperative Fund for Forest Carbon (FCPF).

The IRE seeks to provide positive incentives to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, while protecting forests, conserving biodiversity and improving the livelihoods of indigenous populations and local communities dependent on forests.
For Jalisco four Investment Programs were prepared in coastal basins, which seek to promote coordination among the different government agencies that affect the territory, including activities from different sectors and promoting the development of Land Programs and Community Territorial Ordinances.
In April 2017, the National Forestry Commission and the Ministry of Environment and Territorial Development of the State Government agreed to provide financial resources under the scheme of concurrent funds to be allocated to the payment for environmental services of forest lands belonging to 38 men and women, encompassing a total area of 21,118.57 hectares. In addition to ensuring the provision of environmental services, support allocates about 7% of the total amount to be invested in technical assistance for the proper management of protected forest or forest.

The UK Space Agency, through the International Collaboration Program, initiated a project to improve the management and protection of forests worldwide on 300 million hectares of tropical forest "Forest 2020," to help countries with high biological diversity improve the management and conservation of their forest ecosystems, through the monitoring of tropical forests. Ecometrica is the international consortium that brings together international experts for the monitoring of forests in the world, including: University of Edinburgh, University of Leicester and Edinburgh Carbomap. For Mexico, window areas were selected in two states, Jalisco (345,531.82 ha.) and Chiapas (500,015.61 ha.), signing collaboration agreements with local partners such as FIPRODEFO in Jalisco, PRONATURA-SUR, AMBIO and ECOSUR in Chiapas.
