New Mexico will aim to preserve almost third of its public land from development in the next decade after Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham signed an executive order last week to join efforts on the federal level implemented by the administration of President Joe Biden.

Lujan Grisham’s order committed New Mexico to a “30×30” initiative, which would see 30 percent of state land conserved by 2030.

The order directed multiple state agencies to use their authority to put forth conservation programs on public lands, and target funding by leveraging existing state money.

Agency leaders were also tasked with engaging local communities for recommendations to ensure “diverse” land uses are considered.

The agencies will meet quarterly to assess New Mexico’s progress toward the 30×30 goal, reporting the governor annually.
