BACKGROUND

Mexico's Forests are some of the most amazing in the world. This document provides a who's who and is updated on a regular basis.

SEMARNAT

SEMARNAT is the national ministry for the environment.

b SEMARNAT - National Forest Campaign
b SEMARNAT - National Forest Plan

CONSEJO NACIONAL FORESTAL (CONAFOR)

CONAFOR, the National Forest Commission, is part of SEMARNAT and was established in 2001 as a new federal initiative by President Fox. Its main objectives are to improve Mexico's forest sector in both its natural forests and by establishing commercial plantations.

One of its main goals is to support and implement the recently revised Forestry Law that they consider to be "inclusive and democratic," since it is hoped these efforts will allow local governments, civic agencies, and the private sector to participate in forest policy setting and programs. They have already supported more than 10,000 sustainable forestry projects and have created over 100 forest research projects.

PROYECTO DE CONSERVACION Y MANEJO SUSTENTABLE DE RECURSOS FORESTALES (PROCYMAF)

PROCYMAF is a CONAFOR project in community forestry financed by the World Bank starting in 1998. Its priority has been to strengthen community-based organizations in forest-related activities, including both timber and non-timber forest products.

CONSEJO CIVIL MEXICANO PARA LA SILVICULTURA SOSTENIBLE (CCMSS)

Consejo Civil Mexicano para la Silvicultura Sostenible (CCMSS) is an enviromental group based in Mexico City and headed by Sergio Madrid. Its work has focused on community forestry and certification.
