Community forest management in Mexico reduces poverty while conserving natural resources
Newspapers El Financiero and Milenio.com report on new studies that show community forest management in Mexico has reduced poverty and social inequity while simultaneously conserving natural resources. Over 2,300 forest communities have been given forest use permission in Mexico, resulting in economic growth and effective conservation of forests in these areas. The report suggests the need for a complementary system of both publicly protected areas and a framework for community managed forests in order to effectively reduce poverty and conserve natural resources.
