Private Land Mechanisms for Biodiversity Conservation in Mexico

Project Summary

The project is structured around its five main objectives: Toolkit development, Site implementation, Policy promotion, Capacity building and Dissemination. The five components are closely inter-linked, with some outcomes serving as inputs for other components of the overall project, as is shown in the Matrix of Inter-linkage of Project Components and Activities that summarizes the input of the relevant actors participating in the design. (see Matrix/Table 2)It is expected that this project will produce field-validated methodologies, guidelines and criteria that will significantly potential the extensive use of the PLMBCs. This project will, through a systematic application of the conservation tools in selected pilot sites, refine and field validate the tools developed to date in Pronatura. It will also carry out additional legal and incentive studies to complement the toolkit and ensure that it covers all relevant aspects of sustainable private land conservation.
