Since 2012, FANP has promoted the Protected Areas Learning Community (CAAP).

In 2022, the FANP celebrated 25 years of operation as a successful financial mechanism contributing to priority ecosystems' conservation and permanence. Thanks to the collaboration of CONANP, communities, local organizations, and the trust of more than 23 donors who have joined this initiative since 1997. FANP is an exemplary mechanism at the national and international levels. In 2022, in addition to celebrating the success of this mechanism, we celebrated the collaboration between the government and the organizations and the work of the park rangers who, together with the communities that inhabit the PAs, guard and conserve the natural resources that allow us Mexicans to enjoy environmental services.
Twenty-five years after its inception, the FANP channels strategic financial resources to 55 federal PAs covering 36.18 million hectares, representing 54% of the protected land territory and 35% of the protected marine territory.
During the first half of 2023, FMCN facilitated the update of strategic planning in eight PAs: Montes Azules Biosphere Reserves, El Triunfo, Selva El Ocote, Sierra Gorda in Querétaro, Alto Golfo and Colorado River Delta, Sierra La Laguna, and the Necaxa River Hydrographic Basin Natural Resources Protection Area. During that period, the FANP channeled financial resources to 21 forest fire events through the Emergency Fund, which were promptly attended by community brigades in collaboration with Conanp and other institutions such as Conafor.
