    RESPONSIBLE: Saul Cruz, Forest Officer

    Background and Justification:
     
    Selva Maya is a strategic block of important natural ecosystems. It is the second largest tropical forest of America, after the Amazon rainforest. It possesses an extraordinary diversity of endemic and endangered species, as well as important sites of historical and cultural heritage. Located between Belize, Guatemala and the southeast of Mexico, covers 42,300 square kilometers in a corridor of protected natural areas in which different categories of management converge. In some cases, these areas are separated by international boundaries but united by conservation and sustainable management efforts by governments, civil society and cooperation agencies, among other relevant actors.
     
    The interest in protecting Selva Maya is reflected in the laws and initiatives of the three countries. For protected areas to have the desired effect, it is necessary to strengthen the capacity of institutions, their representatives and implementers at the local level and the communities in the region.
