Conservation Measures in Five Ecosystems

As of: October 2021

The purpose of the project was to promote the conservation, restoration and sustainable use of five areas of national and international importance, with special regard to preventing and adapting to climatic changes and preserving biological diversity. The protected area administrations were strengthened by providing equipment and environmental communication activities. In addition, training was provided on fire surveillance and control and on sustainable resource use, with particular regard to fisheries, cattle management and farming. In order to improve cooperation with stakeholders, coordination workshops were organised together with municipalities, local stakeholder groups and CONANP.
