We are Forests of People who protect the resources of their people, for the good of all peoples.
AMPB in 10 years
In 10 years, we envision vital indigenous and local communities, stronger rights, and safer forests. Right now, and for the past 10 years, we are working towards that future.
A school with no walls
The Mesoamerican School of Leadership is a space for dialogue, thought and identity. We train leaders with the will to transcend and defend the life of the forests.
Women for our forests
The Coordinator of Territorial Women Leaders of Mesoamerica works to change the world as carriers of ancestral knowledge about our relationship with natural resources.
A fund with direct impact
The Mesoamerican Territorial Fund is a financial mechanism for the promotion of territorial governance and development in the forested regions of Mesoamerica.
Know our work
The AMPB is currently working on two clear advocacy routes: the Community Forest Management agenda and the Territorial Rights agenda. Both are based on the global Climate Change agenda.
Our youth’s Declaration
We, the Mesoamerican youth, join our voices to the global youth movement that cries out for the salvation of Mother Earth as we do.
Indigenous Peoples’ contributions
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published its Special Report on Climate Change and Lands and for the first time has recognized the rights of the world’s indigenous peoples and local communities as a scalable climate solution.
With traditional norms and cultural uses, and through community forestry, indigenous peoples and local communities in Mesoamerica have managed over time to give true content to protected areas.
