The AMBIO Cooperative has received the National Forestry Merit Award 2013 in the ‘Civil Society Organisations’ category. The Mexican Government award was presented by the Present of the Republic, Enrique Peña Nieto, on the ‘day of the tree’. It recognizes more than 15 years accompanying communities and small scale farmers from Chiapas through programs and projects that promote harmonious, integrated and sustainable rural development by means of sound management of their natural resources. The organization’s pioneer work on climate change mitigation through forestry and agroforestry systems as part of the Scolel´te project was a key factor in gaining this award.
