Community Monitoring Biodiversity in Yucatan Case Study Database A compilation of good practices and lessons learned to contribute innovative subnational solutions to global problems: The Secretariat of Sustainable Development has promoted the involvement of rural communities in the climate action agenda, as it is collaborating with communities to certify part of their territory as Areas Voluntarily Designated for Conservation (ADVC, in Spanish) before the National Commission of Protected Natural Areas (CONANP). Through the ADVC we seek to promote the conservation and care of the forest and biodiversity, through the promotion of more sustainable exploitation practices and the involvement of communities in their protection. Currently, 8,621 hectares are in the final stages of the certification process under this conservation mechanism. Likewise, Payment for Environmental Services (PSA) has been managed, in collaboration with the National Forestry Commission, under a Concurrent Funds scheme for the conservation of 6,500 hectares of the Yucatan forest.
We have worked hand in hand with citizens on multiple sustainable mobility projects, such as the acquisition of 350 efficient buses that make up the Va y Vén transportation system, as well as progress in the new 100% electric transportation project IE-TRAM.
