The main goal of the project Indigenous Peoples and Forests of Mesoamerica is to contribute to an environment favorable for the inclusion and respect of Indigenous Peoples in public policy and decision-making spaces related to territorial rights.

To achieve this objective, the project undertakes actions to influence legislation, public policies and institutional frameworks at the local, national, regional and global levels. The project is developed in Mesoamerica, a cultural region that includes the southern half of Mexico, territories in Guatemala, El Salvador, Belize and western Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica. ICCO Cooperation coordinates this project in alliance with CoPrisma, Edukans, Kerk in Actie, CNV Internationaal and Wilde Ganzen (Wild Geese).
