WIn November 2013, I went to La Chinantla, Oaxaca to visit one of EcoLogic’s newest project sites. As a part of the development team, gaining first-hand knowledge of EcoLogic’s work is important to effectively represent our work in funding proposals and other materials. I traveled with our executive director, Barbara Vallarino, and our regional program director, Gabriela González. I was also excited to meet EcoLogic’s Mexico program officer, Marco Acevedo, in person for the first time.

EcoLogic and its partners have been awarded a $200,000 grant from the Governors’ Climate and Forests (GCF) Fund to provide support for EcoLogic’s CarbonPlus work in the Mexican States of Chiapas and Campeche. The GCF focuses on reducing CO2 emissions from deforestation and establishing lasting frameworks for low-emissions development.

EcoLogic continually seeks to ensure that it is adapting to the local context and providing the best possible solutions for the challenges that rural communities and the nature around them face.
