Since 2009, the Government of Chiapas began the development of the Action Program for Climate Change in Chiapas (PACCCH) funded by the British Embassy in Mexico, and Conservation International. It is currently under public consultation. The REDD+ framework in Chiapas seeks to strengthen local actions as well as providing experiences to help the construction of a national REDD+ strategy. Considering that 62% of Greenhouse gas emissions from Chiapas come from land use change a baseline for potential projects for REDD+ has been developed. Furthermore, a protocol for the MRV requirements has been drafted, as well as criteria for compensation and restoration activities in communities in the Lacadonian jungle. In 2010, the Governors of California, Chiapas and Acre signed a Memorandum of Understanding, as part of a collaborative effort to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation. Chiapas is also a member of the Governors’ Climate and Forests Task Force, focusing on the development of rules and capabilities to generate compliance-grade offsets from REDD+.
