In this sense,  the Calakmul Biosphere Reserve (CBR) of the National Nature Conservation Authority of Mexico (CONANP), the Haciendas del Mundo Maya Foundation (FHMM), the State Institute for the Promotion of Handicraft Activities of Campeche (INEFAAC) and the Selva Maya Programme of the GIZ, developed and implemented the Cycle of Workshops for the Development of Business Capacities.

From April to November 2017 fourteen groups attended eleven workshops to acquire knowledge, skills and abilities that contribute to the development of their company. The topics were taught by specialists and staff of the convening institutions and each workshop lasted between three and four hours, with topics such as: calculation of final price of products and services, fair trade and value chains, introduction to business administration, accounting and tax administration system, among others.

On November 20th, at the closing session, attendees shared how they put into practice what they learned. Together they also developed part of the strategy for business development in 2018, which included forming a network of services providers and producers that contributes to strengthening the tourism offer of Calakmul.
