CANCÚN — The Environmental Compensation Fund of Quintana Roo reached 59 million pesos that will be used for reforestation and restoration of vegetation, work that is under the supervision of the National Forestry Commission (CONAFOR).
This resource registered an increase of more than 6 million pesos, compared to last year, this being the requests that investors made for Land Use Change, ranging from housing, tourism and other activities, which is returned by 100% through the Mexican Forestry Fund, explained Rafael León Negrete, state manager of the unit.
“On average, we generate over 50 million pesos of environmental compensation each year and Quintana Roo is one of the States that contributes the most to the payment of these changes in the use of Soil, acknowledging the permits issued by the Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources (Semarnat), who receive the payment and then return it through the fund,” he said.
The resources are used for the reforestation of the mangroves in Cozumel, to support farmers and to reforest agricultural zones, which are bringing very good results.
Quintana Roo started with a mangrove support project in Cozumel, and the project has now taken hold in other entities such as Campeche, Nayarit, Baja California, Guerrero and Veracruz.
“We have a successful case of a good execution of resources that are given as part of the environmental compensation and that is positive,” said Leon Negrete.
The Conafor does not know the number of permits that Semarnat gives the interested parties, but these are increasing every year and therefore the budget is increasing.
