Fire and Restoration Management Fund (FOMAFUR)

The Fire and Restoration Management Fund (FOMAFUR, Spanish acronym) finances and strengthens fire protection, integrated fire management and restoration actions of affected areas that are a top priority for Mexican biodiversity. In 2022, 11 new field initiatives were launched in priority protected areas (PAs), aimed at strengthening local actors for the prevention and management of forest fires. Seven of these initiatives carried out controlled prescribed burns, in which methodologies were tested to assess the effects of fire on highly relevant ecosystems. Women's participation in fire management activities continues to increase.
