Abstract: This abstract discusses the challenges and issues related to the implementation of Environmental Public Policies (EPP) for Protected Natural Areas (PNA) in Mexico from 1970 to 2018. EPPs aim to achieve sustainable development by balancing economic, environmental, and social dimensions while reconciling conservation and the use of natural resources with restrictions on their use and economic compensation to communities. However, the results of this study reveal that the establishment of PNA has been unilateral and without consensus, leading to limitations on communities' use of the environment without granting them economic compensation or productive alternatives. This has resulted in conflicts from the use of natural resources (CUNR). To address these issues, the paper recommends increasing the budget of programs that support productive activities for populations and building partnerships among the populations and public policies. This research highlights the importance of considering the socio-economic impacts of environmental policies to ensure their success and sustainability in the long term.
