DescriptionThe GEF MSP would support implementation of activities designed to address global environmental objectives, particularly those related to carbon sequestration. Specifically, the proposed GEF MSP would support targeted research to: (a) explore carbon sequestration impacts associated with improved land management practices in several production systems associated with the milpa; and (b) determine the social variables that possibly influence the process of adoption of practices to both increase soil carbon content and improve productivity of farmer resources.
Implementation StatusThe project is in its final stages and a Bank mission is currently in the field, working with the grant recipient, on structuring the MSP completion report. As a result of the generally, highly satisfactory performance, the government of the state of Oaxaca (where the project is being implemented) has committed Mexican pesos 5 million (approx. US $600,000) in order for the project to continue and expand to new areas. The project closes on June 30, 2005.
