The state governments of Campeche, Quintana Roo and Yucatan signed an agreement that places the Peninsula in a leading area in sustainable territorial development.
It has been named the “Sustainability Agreement of the Yucatan Peninsula (ASPY) 2030”, signed by the governors of Quintana Roo, Carlos Joaquín González; of Yucatan, Rolando Zapata; and Campeche, Alejandro Moreno Cárdenas, within the framework of COP 13, which is being held in Cancún until December 17.
The document plans to reduce net deforestation by 80% by the year 2020 and totally eradicate this problem by 2030; restore 2 million hectares of land and reforest the jungles; 50% of the terrestrial and coastal territory of the Yucatan Peninsula will be under conservation and forest management schemes and 50 kilometers of reef ridges will be restored.
“With this agreement, the Yucatan Peninsula becomes the first region of the country to work in coordination with a defined agenda with sustainability goals and indicators,” stated the governor of Quintana Roo, Carlos Joaquín González.
The signing of this important trilateral agreement took place within the framework of the Fifth Global Biodiversity Summit of Subnational Cities and Governments and the State Secretary for the Environment, Alfredo Arellano and Aurelio Ramos, director of The Nature Conservancy Latin America, among other characters also signed it as witnesses.
