Environment and Natural Resource Secretary Juan Rafael Elvira said that his department will invest two billion pesos in developing biodiversity conservation programs and promoting sustainable development in six key regions of Mexico.
“Federal Government will assign 334 million pesos to natural protected areas and 1.414 billion pesos for the conservation of forests and jungles through the National Forestry Commission in 2010.”
He explained that this amount includes 200 million pesos contributed by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), and the Carlos Slim Foundation as part of an agreement signed by the three parties on World Environment Day held in Cozumel, Quintana Roo last year.
