The Four Winds Foundation supports the Network of Indigenous Women on Biodiversity in Latin America and the Caribbean (RMIB-LAC)

The topics analyzed in the workshop were: the Convention on Biological Diversity, the Nagoya Protocol, the Strategic Plan on Biodiversity, strategies and action plans for a national movement for biological diversity, the AkweKon Guidelines, the Voluntary Contribution Fund, the Indigenous Mesoamerican Protocol, and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (CMNUCC). According to Florina Lopez Miro, general coordinator of the RMIB; “… this workshop is very important for us because it allows us to have the opportunity to strengthen our work and the indigenous leaders’ knowledge of these key subjects, such as traditional knowledge, the defense of Mother Earth, using information about the tools and international mechanisms that we can utilize for the struggles and demands in our lands, and to defend our resources against huge megaprojects and extractive industries
