Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


Mexico joined the REDD+ program (Reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation) in 2010, and has since worked on the design of a national strategy to be implemented in the country. Through ACF's theoretical perspective, we analyze advocacy coalitions and belief systems of the actors in the subsystem in the design of Mexico's REDD+ national strategy. All coalitions in the subsystem share a deep core belief that REDD+ as vision has the potential to tackle deforestation problems. When we move from the national to regional and local level, we see conflicting views in the coalitions’ deep core and policy core beliefs. It is concluded that there may be a shift in the belief systems from national to regional and local levels, which can lead to some interests being prioritized while others neglected, and that this is often a question of the coalition’s resources. Therefore, it is of importance, who in practice is planning and implementing the REDD+ strategy of Mexico.
