Description: In 1966 the State Government of Jalisco conducted a review of the state’s forest sector. A new forest agenda resulted from this review, which led to a set of ground breaking actions creating a long term forest development program known as FIPRODEFO (Trust Fund for the Administration of the Forest Development Program of Jalisco). Among the relevant issues, the survey revealed the need to reclaim damaged forest land, strengthen silviculture programs for natural temperate forests, support commercial plantation efforts, update and improve forest industry infrastructure, and improve information gathering and dissemination in support of policy planning. Solving these problems became the agenda for FIPRODEFO.

Disappointment with quality and opportunity in national forest statistics reports, and the clear notion that information gathered for national purposes lack the detail and depth to support local decisions was building a demand for a state of the art statistical and geographical information system tailored for Jalisco’s conditions and agenda. Responding to this opportunity, FIPRODEFO joined in a strategic knowledge partnership with CAMESA (Consortium for Advancing Monitoring for Ecosystem Sustainability in the Americas). The two year process of scientific and technical development of IMRENAT, Jalisco’s natural resources inventory and monitoring project, ensued. Guidelines, technology, and procedures derived in the development phase shaped IMRENAT operational phase, up to the point of completion of the first of six regions.
