Presentation by Mexico - Challenges and opportunities in mainstreaming biodiversity in Mexico

  1. 1. Oscar Manuel Ramírez Flores Challenges and opportunities from mainstreaming biodiversity in agriculture, forestry and fisheries: Insights from Mexico OCDE side event “Mainstreaming Biodiversity and Development”
  2. 2. BIODIVERSITY IS ESSENTIAL FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT • Subsistence and small-scale agriculture and fisheries provide livelihoods for many of the world’s rural poor. • Biodiversity also offers opportunities for business development - Major tourism attractions are closely linked to biodiversity.
  3. 3. BIODIVERSITY MAINSTREAMING IN MEXICO • Mexico holds the 12th place in food production world-wide and is considered among the major 20 producers in marine fisheries worldwide. • Biodiversity mainstreaming in the Mexican primary sectors (agriculture, forestry, fisheries) include goals and course of actions linked to biodiversity conservation and sustainable use within plans, sectoral programs and legal framework. • The Tourism industry in Mexico has some of the most significant advances in the field of biodiversity mainstreaming.
  4. 4. PARTNERS
  5. 5. SECTORAL WORKSHOPS • Four workshops: Tourism, Fisheries, Agriculture, Forestry July 2016 Total of Participants: 135
  6. 6. BIODIVERSITY MAINSTREAMING IN MEXICO • During 2016, Mexico structured the Strategies for Biodiversity Mainstreaming in the Agriculture, Forestry, Fisheries and Tourism Sectors (2016-2022), through close collaboration with Federal government branches, civil organizations, producers, service providers and academia.
  7. 7. LESSONS LEARNED • The diagnoses and identification of opportunities represented a key step in the construction of sectoral strategies. • The level of information on interactions with biodiversity is variable, so it is necessary to generate and share information to promote dialogue and will towards sustainable use. • Sectors are aware about their impacts on biodiversity, which is an opportunity to achieve the goals of the sectors with a better performance in terms of sustainability.
  8. 8. • The sectors identified opportunities for intersectoral collaboration in order to sum efforts and efficiently achieve the economic growth goals, with sustainability and equity. • The methodology applied was effective and contributed to improve the dialogue within the work teams. • COP13 became an important incentive to increase attention and prioritize the process of strategy construction. • External collaboration and funding were key elements for implementing the different actions of the process. LESSONS LEARNED
  9. 9. • Exchanging experiences between officials and actors from different sectors helped to strengthen dialogue. • It’s important to develop and align common indicators among the sectors involved. • Promote private investment and cooperation as key elements to consolidate successful projects in priority areas. LESSONS LEARNED
  10. 10. NEXT STEPS: INTERNALIZATION AND DIVULGATION OF THE STRATEGIES • Internalize strategies in key areas of the sectors for implementation through sector workshops. • Generate a training program for key officials in each sector to strengthen the implementation of the Strategy. • Participation and collaboration with the sectors in outreach and dissemination forums that increase the recognition and appropriation of the Strategies, including stakeholders of civil society, cooperation agencies, etc.
  11. 11. NEXT STEPS Cross-cutting public policies and their instruments: • Generate and share relevant information to decision-making across sectors sharing experiences and identifying success or failure factors • Link to other public administration actors to generate synergy and recognition in the fulfillment of SDGs. • Establish a program of work with the Legislative and the involved sectors to advance in the incorporation of biodiversity into the legal frameworks. Territorial implementation of the Strategies • Identification of priority areas to focus joint multi-sectoral efforts, with definition of goals and scope in the identified territories. • Identification and promotion of successful cases of biodiversity mainstreaming for replication and scaling. • Design pilot projects with a mid-term vision and linked to indicators of integration of biodiversity.
  12. 12. MONITORING AND EVALUATION • Design specific indicators about implementation of the Strategies at sectoral level. • Design indicators shared among sectors to assess the effectiveness of intersectoral coordination in biodiversity mainstreaming. • Generate a platform to systematize the information of indicators on the implementation of actions for biodiversity mainstreaming. • Indicators for investments of each sector that are oriented towards the conservation, sustainable use and restoration of biodiversity.
