The Mexican President introduces new plans to protect the country's forests affected by fires in 1998. The plans identify 85 priority forests in 21 of the 32 Mexican states - covering a total of 188,000 hectares.

These forests are "Sites of Ecological Restoration" and will be subject to a legal status which prevents change in land use and enables the Ministry of the Environment to develop and implement forest recovery plans for each area.
