XiCO2e: Mexican Peninsula Forest Project

About this project

The XiCO2e: Mexican Peninsula Forest project, located on the Yucatán Peninsula, aims to promote the sustainable management of tropical forests while improving ejidos‘ livelihoods and enhancing carbon sequestration. The Yucatán Peninsula contains Mexico‘s largest remaining strip of tropical rainforest, which faces constant land-use change pressures mainly due to agriculture and infrastructure expansion. Spanning over 72,460 hectares, this project site holds immense environmental significance, vital in preserving and rejuvenating the rich forest ecosystem while effectively mitigating damage from disturbance

Through community forest management, ejidos ensure responsible forest management in a region where forests have been historically susceptible to illegal and unregulated logging. The project provides regular training for local communities in the sustainable management of natural resources, improving the efficiency of forest protection, production and productivity. Accordingly, more efficient forest management is guaranteed and opportunities for sustainable income generation are expanded.
