Misión Kalinga para el Desarrollo de Niños y Jóvenes Indígenas (KAMICYDI)

Kalinga Mission for Indigenous Children and Youth Development, Inc. (KAMICYDI) works to improve food security for the indigenous Kalinga people of the Philippines Cordillera, while ensuring the ecological integrity of the area's mountain forests. The association draws from traditional farming practices and customary forest management systems.

These traditional approaches have been augmented by a robust reforestation program and by the introduction of new food sources such as mud fish, soy and mango. Biodiversity monitoring using modern sampling techniques is conducted regularly to measure changes in forest composition and health. KAMICYDI has also played a leading role in regional indigenous peoples' movements to resist large-scale extractive industries, including proposed geothermal projects.
