SUSTAINABLE AND HOLISTIC USE OF THE MEZQUITE PRODUCTS MADE WITH MEZQUITE AND ITS DERIVATIVES
The objective of this call is to promote the sustainable and holistic use of mezquite and its derivatives through the generation of a compendium that showcases the diverse uses both in food and in traditional medicine, artistic creations, animal feed, materials for construction and others. The compendium will be hold in the Mezquite Project website for communities to access it. Hard copies will be printed to reach these that do not have access to internet. With the above, it seeks to contribute to the sustainable development of families and communities in vulnerable situations that inhabit the various regions of the world where mezquite is produced, in addition to preserving and sustainably using the species.
