CONECTA provides an opportunity to coordinate efforts to address the dual challenge of food security in the context of climate change. It has a landscape approach, focusing on watersheds vulnerable to climate change and affected by soil erosion.
The actions supported promote productive and environmental practices to increase the forest area under sustainable landscape management and improve livelihoods, water quality, and biodiversity. In addition, CONECTA promotes food production with low greenhouse gas emissions, which contributes to meeting the commitments made by Mexico as one of the signatories to the Paris Agreement while simultaneously helping to address the great challenge of food security.
CONECTA's funding comes from the Global Environment Facility (GEF), through the World Bank, and complementary funding (GEF co-financing).
The lines of work (components) that guide CONECTA's actions are:
CONECTA promotes the connectivity of livestock and agroforestry landscapes in watersheds in Chiapas, Chihuahua, Jalisco and Veracruz.

In the first half of 2022, in coordination with the Technical Coordinating Unit and the regional funds, and with the technical leadership of INECC, progress was made with the IWAP of the La Antigua River watershed, which will serve as a pilot to refine the project methodology. In addition, the calls for subprojects and PLAT were disseminated through different channels; among them, 16 workshops were held in which 516 people participated, and more than 260,000 people were reached through social networks. Following the dissemination of the calls for proposals, 143 subproject proposals and 63 PLAT proposals were received. Of these, with the support of groups of independent experts and the monitoring of the Productive Landscapes Technical Committee, those that met the requirements were evaluated, and 30 subproject proposals and 14 PLAT proposals were pre-selected. Subsequently, contracts were formalized with the pre-selected organizations, and they were accompanied in the identification of possible risks and impacts and mitigation measures.
