Funding for Forest Protection in a New Sustainable Mexico

Mexico has just received almost $400 million from the World Bank in the form of a loan and from the Forest Investment Program (FIP) in order to develop a stronger forest protection plan.

The Forest Investment Program, part of the Strategic Climate Fund (SCF), strives to combat deforestation and prevent the degradation of forests in Mexico by wildfires. The program also attempts to help developing countries reduce carbon emissions and transition to more eco-friendly foresting practices.

    Hello

    I work for the largest bank in Mexico. Can you please send us more information about the work you do to protect forests in Mexico? It would be great if in the future, people could donate money through our automatic tellers, to your organization to: protect Mexico´s forests, create jobs for people protecting the forests, save Mexico´s environment, protect Mexico from droughts, maintain the tortilla price, etc.
    Please also send information to my personal e-mail rdorantes5000@gmail.com
