In 2003, Mexico's National Forest Commission (CONAFOR) started the "Mexican Forest Fund". This government run program pays Mexican landowners $30‐$40 per hectare per year to protect watershed and provide watershed services by keeping their forest cover intact. This compensation creates a real opportunity for local residents to preserve forests
