CEDO's programs are designed to promote biodiversity conservation, fisheries co-management and community well-being with nature-based solutions. CEDO's realistic, scientific and community-based solutions recognize, respect and take advantage of the cultural, socioeconomic and biological interconnections between local communities and their ecosystems.
CEDO Intercultural integrates people, knowledge and solutions; to promote resilient communities and ecosystems. The organization is committed to improvement based on the continuous strengthening of communities and the natural environment, through: i) knowledge for decision-making; ii) the dissemination and application of tools for promoting community participation and consensus; iii) education; iv) conservation, sustainable use and dissemination of the regional biocultural heritage; v) adaptation to climate change and vi) the design and promotion of ecosystem-based harvesting and management schemes.
It is a space for continuous capacity building, technical advice and certification of labor competencies for our community partners, whose activities depend on the sea.
