Description

more
In Mexico, land is divided into public, private, and social ownership. This layer shows all social lands in Mexico, which together cover 53% of the country. Social lands are further split into ejidos and community lands, comprising 43% and 10% of the entire country, respectively. Ejidos are communal lands that were granted for agriculture after the Mexican Revolution. Each ejido is zoned into areas for human settlement, individual land parcels, and common-use. Ejidos have their own governing bodies for decision making (Asamblea), representation (Comisariado), and control (Consejo de vigilancia). Community lands are created through recognition of colonial titles or ancestral possession. Communities also have their own governing bodies.
