Cooperativa AMBIO

About us

The Cooperative AMBIO promotes sustainable rural development in a comprehensive and harmonious manner in terms of gender, culture and socioeconomic levels within the communities in various areas of the south of Mexico.

For over 20 years, AMBIO has successfully promoted sustainable land-use practices among smallholder farmers in marginalised communities in Chiapas and Oaxaca. Our approach is based on close collaboration with the communities where we work, and the subsequent implementation of capacity building programs to best address their needs. AMBIO also collaborates with partners in academia, government agencies, as well as national and international aid organizations in order to coordinate interventions and effectively promote climate change mitigation and adaptation activities.

AMBIO is a nationally and internationally recognized organization as a reference for the design and implementation of projects for the sustainable management of natural resources. As part of its activities, AMBIO strengthens the local capacities of smallholders in rural communities for mitigation and adaptation to climate change in south of Mexico.

MISSION

AMBIO's mission is to contribute to the good management of forest and related resources, mitigate climate change and strengthen groups, communities and rural organizations in Mexico.

VISION

To be a leading organization in the design and implementation of projects for sustainable management of natural resources that strengthen local capacities for mitigation and adaptation to climate change in Mexico.
