Programs Supported

CEDO Intercultural is a unique collaboration between non-profit organizations in Mexico and the United States.

Operating under a United Executive Committee and inspired by a vision, mission, and strategic programs, CEDO pools its resources and experiences to offer realistic environmental and community solutions that recognize, respect, and drive cultural, socio-economic, and biological interconnection and preservation of Oceans and Deserts between Mexico and the United States.


CEDO’s integrated approach combines a wide array of disciplines (education, capacity building, research and monitoring, climate-change assessment and adaptation, and economic initiatives), and is being scaled to address the needs of more than nine coastal communities where thousands of people make their living from small-scale fisheries, tourism and associated economies.

Our Mission

To foster vibrant communities and resilient ecosystems in the Northern Gulf of California and other ecoregions by integrating people, knowledge and solutions.

Our Vision

Thriving Coastal Communities, Sustainable Livelihoods, and Healthy Ecosystems!
