Consejo de Mujeres Indigenas y Biodiversidad (CMIB)

CMIB is a network of 16 Indigenous women's organisations in Guatemala that focus on lobbying and advocacy in local, national, and international spaces on climate change, agriculture, food sovereignty and biodiversity. The network focuses on valuing ancestral knowledge and the conservation of ‘Mother Earth’. In its national and international advocacy, CMIB reclaims the rights of Indigenous women to represent the land they live on and to resist the violence they experience as women and as Indigenous people.
