Public Webinar

The Reserve hosted a public webinar on September 23, 2021 to kickoff the Mexico Forest Protocol V3.0 revision process.

Protocol Workgroup

The Mexico Forest Protocol will be developed through the Reserve’s multi-stakeholder workgroup process. The Reserve will strive to create a well-balanced workgroup consisting of industry representatives, government, project developers, academia, verifiers, and environmental advocacy organizations across Mexico. To apply for the workgroup, please fill out the Statement of Interest form below and submit it to policy(at) no later than Thursday, September 30, 2021.

Stakeholders not chosen to be part of the workgroup are welcome to participate in the process as “observers.” Observers may attend workgroup meetings in listen-only mode, comment on the draft protocol when it is released for public comment, and attend the public webinar held during the public comment period.
