Mexico's National REDD+ strategy (ENAREDD+) is currently under development. Expected to be launched in 2012 following an extensive public consultation process, this has not been the case, and as of April 2013, the draft remains under development. It is expected to be presented at some point in 2013.
The ENAREDD+ aims to inform national REDD+ implementation in Mexico. The ENAREDD+ is expected to include key elements, such as: 1) building and/or strengthening institutional capacities; 2) improving targeting and effectiveness of existing programmes (e.g., the Community Forestry Project (Programa de Desarrollo Forestal Comunitario, PROCYMAF)), exploring the experience of the Mexican Forest Fund and expanding the Payment for Environmental Services model; 3) promoting Sustainable Forest Management (SFM); 4) improving monitoring capabilities for land-use and land-use change (LU/LUC) based on National Forest Inventories, including MRV in local communities; and 5) integrating new financing mechanisms (e.g. carbon finance), with positive impacts on biodiversity conservation and livelihoods of forest landowners and communities.
The ENAREDD+ is being developed at the national level with a nesting scheme for subnational and local activities.
