The formation of INECOL arose around the interest in developing research on the use of natural resources, conservation and biodiversity in Mexico. In turn, this interest stemmed from the need to have basic studies and scientifically founded answers to solve ecological problems derived from the use of natural resources. This position has allowed us to gather an important accumulation of experiences and is still valid today. With this, it seeks to support with solid foundations the establishment of adequate policies and mechanisms to continue and promote the development of the country, avoiding as much as possible the affectation of the environment and the biological wealth of the ecosystems, which condition the quality of life and the well-being of the population.
