The AMBIO Cooperative provides technical advice for the Environmental Services Program of the National Forest Commission (CONAFOR). Within the framework of this Program, the Ejido San Francisco, in the municipality of Ocosingo, has received technical advice from AMBIO since 2018.
This is a Tseltal community located in the northern part of the Lacandon Jungle. Some activities developed with this Ejido as part of the technical advice have been: the opening and maintenance of firebreaks in risk areas, preparation and application of calendars for agricultural burning and surveillance routes.
Likewise, 15 clean cookstoves were installed. These stoves have been promoted by AMBIO for more than 20 years and have very good acceptance in different communities where they have been installed.
Communities have identified several advantages over AMBIO's clean cookstoves. They mention that they are practical, easy to install, that help them improve the quality of family life (thanks to the extraction of smoke out of the kitchens) and they highlighted the savings in firewood consumption.
