MRV Comunitario

En U’yool’che pensamos que para lograr verdaderos procesos de desarrollo comunitario, es necesario empoderar a las comunidades aliadas. Una forma de hacerlo es a traves de la generación de capacidades. Por ejemplo, el Monitoreo comunitario es una potente herramienta para generar apropriación del manejo del ecosistema, ademas de garantizar su sostenibilidad a largo plazo.
En la foto de abajo, Jonathan capacita a Fili al uso de un programa de monitoreo comunitario para la medición de carbono en la selva.

la 2da vida de una estufa tuumben k’ooben de 3 años

Despues de 3 años de una dura vida, con calor, choques, niños, pero también deliciosos platillos y miles de tortillas a manos, esta estufa conoce una segunda vida. Su dueño con mucho amor le pusó algo de azulejos, y cambió los comales. Ya esta lista para 3 años mas! La estufa ahorradora de leña puede ser reparada de por vida!

MÉXICO, D.F.- Activistas de Greenpeace México protestaron frente a las oficinas centrales de la Secretaría de Agricultura federal por el permiso que presuntamente se otorgó para la siembra de soya transgénica en 30 mil hectáreas de la Península de Yucatán.

Aleira Lara, coordinadora de la campaña de Agricultura Sustentable y Transgénicos de Greenpeace México, indicó en entrevista que en coordinación con apicultores y empresarios se presentó un amparo para que se prohiba el cultivo de transgénicos en la zona.

Sostuvo que la producción apícola en la Península de Yucatán, que se exporta principalmente a Europa, corre el riesgo de que se contamine por polen transgénico de los cultivos aledaños.

Indicó que ante esa eventualidad la organización ambientalista pide a la Secretaría de Agricultura federal tomar decisiones con base en los intereses de los mexicanos, los productores y los consumidores, publica Notimex.

De acuerdo con Aleira Lara, se habría autorizado la siembra de 30 mil hectáreas de soya transgénica de la empresa Monsanto en Campeche, Yucatán y Quintana Roo, lo que representa un fuerte golpe para la calidad de la miel de esa región.

Planteó que “la contaminación por polen transgénico está poniendo un estigma en esta producción de miel mexicana”, lo que es riesgoso pues recientemente se prohibió la comercialización en Alemania de una producción contaminada por el polen de cultivos transgénicos.

Asimismo, dijo, se tiene que contener la producción hasta que no se compruebe que están libres de polen transgénico “y eso es a lo que ya se están enfrentando los productores mexicanos, quienes tendrán que correr con los gastos de los estudios de laboratorio para determinar la pureza de su producto”.

DECISION LCA SOBRE REDD+

COmpartimos con ustedes los principales resultados de los “Long Term Cooperation Actions” sobre REDD+. Como podrán ver hay algunos avances desde la COP16, pero también much incertidumbre (mercado, mas necesidad de trabajo de organismo cientifico, …)
