The state of Yucatan was part of the United Nations Conference on Biological Diversity (COP 15) in Montreal, Canada, where several outstanding initiatives for biodiversity conservation in Mexico were presented.
Yucatan's government and civil society were part of the COP 15, a United Nations convention that this year approved the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework, a historic global agreement to halt biodiversity loss and protect 30% of terrestrial and marine areas by 2030 to achieve the shared vision of living in harmony with nature by 2050.
The Governor of Yucatan, Mauricio Vila, presented the various strategies that are being deployed in the state to maintain the health of ecosystems and protect the biodiversity of the entity, among which is Tech4Nature Mexico. This project is carried out in collaboration with C Minds, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the Government of Yucatan, and Tech4All by Huawei, in partnership with the Polytechnic University of Yucatan, Rainforest Connection, and the local community.
Likewise, Regina Cervera, Project Coordinator at C Minds, presented the Tech4Nature Mexico initiative within the event "PANORAMA - Solutions for Successful Implementation" as part of the solutions that PANORAMA seeks to disseminate to share concrete actions towards the protection of biodiversity around the world. At this event, the CBD Secretariat, the German Federal Ministry of Environment, as well as representatives of solutions in China and Madagascar illustrated the PANORAMA approach through case studies together with Mexico.
PANORAMA - Solutions for a Healthy Planet is a partnership that documents and promotes examples of inspiring and viable solutions for conservation and sustainable development for capacity building and knowledge management. PANORAMA supports capacity building, knowledge management, and peer-to-peer learning towards a successful Global Biodiversity Framework.
In October 2022, Tech4Nature Mexico was selected as one of the 22 best practice cases in leveraging technologies for conservation globally in the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and Huawei's 'Tech4Nature - Solutions in Focus' report on the PANORAMA portal.
Tech4Nature is a global partnership to increase success in nature conservation through digital technology innovation. Created by IUCN and Huawei's TECH4ALL program, Tech4Nature is conceived as an open partnership to apply and promote digital solutions for just and effectively protected and conserved areas.
