Mexico is home to 64.8 million hectares of forest, which covers approximately one-third of the country’s total land area. Though the Mexico’s overall deforestation rate is low, forest degradation remains high within rural states, where forests are susceptible to land conversion due to agricultural expansion. Additional drivers of deforestation include mining, tourism, and urbanization.

In 2010, the Mexican government presented its Vision for REDD+ (Visión de México sobre REDD+: Hacia una Estrategia Nacional) at the 16th Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC (COP16) in Cancun. The country then went on to develop its National REDD+ Strategy (ENAREDD+), which underwent consultation and review processes 2014, with implementation set to begin in 2015.
