PSYDEH works with the Consejo Consultivo to Prepare for COP13 in Cancun, Mexico

PSYDEH-Non-Profit-NGO-for-Women-in-Mexico-Post-2177-v002-compressorPSYDEH is Hidalgo’s only NGO representative on the Mexican federal government Consejo Consultivo de la Comisión Nacional Para El Desarrollo De Los Pueblos Indígenas, a national citizen board advising this Comisión on indigenous policy, programs and actions.

As counselor, we’ve attended numerous 2016 work sessions in Chiapas, Mexico City, the State of Mexico and Baja California. In Chiapas, we were among 5000 people celebrating the signing of a new Convention that establishes 50 centers strategically located across the country, and staffed with indigenous-speaking employees, to address the fact that up to 4 million Mexican citizens, especially indigenous people, do not have birth certificates.


In Mexico City, Toluca and Baja, we focused on issues ranging from national justice system reform to Mexico’s indigenous peoples’ positions for the United Nations’ December 2016 COP13 in Cancun, Mexico. Here, 10,000 people from around the world will meet in Cancun to negotiate agreements and commitments to promote the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity.




PSYDEH is a non-profit civil association, which was formed by the initiative of a group of young women from the municipality of Santiago Tulantepec in the State of Hidalgo. PSYDEH is committed to working with and for the most vulnerable communities in the region through the promotion of a Sustainable Human Development.
