Assessing and Capitalizing on the Potential to Enhance Forest Carbon Sinks through Forest Landscape Restoration while Benefitting Biodiversity Assessing and Capitalizing on the Potential to Enhance Forest Carbon Sinks through Forest Landscape Restoration while Benefitting Biodiversity Presentation Transcript

  • Assessing and Capitalizing on the Potential to Enhance Forest Carbon Sinks through Forest Landscape Restoration while Benefitting Biodiversity Partnership Program Contribution : Geotecnológica de Centro América, S.A.
  • Index • • • • • International Programs Background Objectives Methodology Results – National level – Regional level • Conclusions • Available on website
  • CONABIO International Programs GEF/World Bank “Susteinable Production Systems and Biodiversity” UICN-BMU “Facilitating countries and communities in the design of pro-poor REDD-Plus benefit sharing schemes.” IFAD “Programme to Strengthen Community-Based Management in Support of the REDD+ in Mesoamerica” (PROFORCO) UICN-NORAD “Advancing REDD+: Mobilising private investment for community-based, carbon-intensive landscape restoration”
  • Background • Within the initiative "The Bonn Challenge" launched in 2011, which promotes to restore 150 million hectares of forests and degraded lands worldwide, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) together with the Federal Ministry of Environment of Germany (BMU), developed in 2012 the IUCN-BMU project in Mexico.
  • Objectives 1.Identify potential areas to implement initiatives of forest landscape restoration* in Mexico. 2.The information generated is used as a tool to manage local and international financial resources to guide restoration efforts. * Restoration: Retrieve the basic functions of ecosystems.
  • Methodology A. Defining criteria B. Gathering C. Data proces D. Evaluation multicriteria E. Mapping
  • A. Defining criteria Workshop, september 2012, CONABIO Office, México City Institutions that participated in the workshop to define the criteria : Workshop: • Participatory process with institutional actors (30 professional) to define ecological, economic and social criteria. B. Gathering Working with other National Institutions: • Sharing information INEGI (National Institute of Geography and Statistics) October 2012, Aguascalientes City, Mex.
  • Forest zoning • C. Data process Deforestation risk 3 Deterioration levels National Comission Forest • 3 levels to deforestation risk National Ecology Institute & Climate Change Erosion risk Potencial and real land use • 3 Priority levels to restauration in Land forest with high risk to wood extraction National Institute of Geography and Statistics • 3 Priority levels to restauration classified by erosion risk according type of soil National Institute of Geography and Statistics
  • C. Data process follow Fire resilience Level of preservation of vegetation • 3 Priority levels to restauration classified by level of preservation of vegetation National Comission Biodiversity • • 3 Priority levels to restauration classified by fire resilience National Comission Biodiversity Cloud forest 3 Priority levels to restauration in cloud forest land National Comission Biodiversity
  • D. Evaluation multicriteria 1 Process 1. Cartographic overlay process in Geographic Information Systems (GIS). 2. Weighing and reclassify the final maps 3. Adding map with the most fragile ecosistem (Cloud forest) 2 3 E. Mapping
  • Results The suggest surface for forest landscape restoration is 302.124 km2 (13% of the country)
  • Results: Regional level Attention sites for forest landscape restauration on biological corridors
  • Results: Regional level 100,440 ha Lancantún River, march 2013 Worshop with local developmet agencies,march 2013 Paddock,march 2013
  • Conclusions • It is essential to have a map that prioritizes potential sites for restoration. • The map it is a good reference tool for future work in conjunction with other institutions involved in forest resources in Mexico. • It showed the potential of information management technologies and modeling geographic space to address a complex problem of land use.
  • Ecoregions Priority terrestrial regions Areas of important bird conservation Priority hydrologic regions
  • Priority sites for conservation of terrestrial biodiversity Areas of high biodiversity priority attention
