Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal participates in the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, an event “which is attended only by invitation and which represents a platform to continue promoting Yucatán,” according to a statement.

The head of the Executive intervenes in this meeting by participating in panel tables and work meetings to share his experiences and learn about successful practices that can add to what is being done in the entity in various areas.

On his first day of work, he met with Ambassador Peter Thomson, special envoy of the Secretary General of the United Nations (UN) for the Ocean, with whom he spoke about the strategies that could be promoted in the entity to strengthen the conservation of mangroves and wetlands of Yucatán.

Vila Dosal and the ambassador talked about Yucatán’s potential to promote an initiative that generates more income for Yucatecan families through carbon markets that conserve mangrove resources in the state.

As part of his work agenda, he participated in the Forum Catalyzing the Advancement of Mangroves, where he stated that Yucatán has been working to recognize the importance of mangroves for the world and the Yucatecan communities, for which he reiterated the commitment to generate ecosystem recovery and conservation policies for the state.

In his presentation, Vila Dosal spoke about the opportunities and projects that are being carried out in the entity to develop conservation strategies that ensure compliance with international commitments for the advancement of mangroves.

In his government, it is essential to promote the advancement of the mangrove as a catalyst for investment on a scale for these areas, and, therefore, work has been done to ensure that every project is registered and accompanied by the state administration, he said.

Also, he pointed out, that it is sought that the criteria that are taken into account for the monitoring of the projects are homogeneous and also with social, economic, and fair benefit for the communities and that the strategy considers the prioritization of the integration of biological corridors and water corridors, guaranteeing a long-term territory protection policy.

The governor indicated that what has worked in Yucatán is to generate projects that are comprehensive, multidisciplinary and that scale to generate a state public policy that provides environmental, social, legal, and financial certainty over time, addressing issues such as waste management, territory conservation and integrated management of coastal zones, which includes a complex and broad vision of the importance, conservation and sustainable use of mangroves.

Likewise, he shared that the Ecosystem Recovery and Conservation Strategy was built in the state, which aims to find economic and financial alternatives with a sustainable use of resources with economic and social benefits to the surrounding communities. Vila Dosal highlighted that they have worked hand in hand with various institutions and organizations.
