The Cuernavaca Center for Intercultural Dialogue on Development describes itself as "an intercultural, ecumenical Christian retreat center rooted in an inclusive and liberating theology".

Located in Cuernavaca, Mexico, CCIDD was founded in 1977 by former lay missionary, Ray Plankey, with the goal 
of helping "churches be more prophetic in the economic and political struggle of Latin Americans".

The work of the centre focuses on social justice and ecological issues.

Its method is "see-judge-act-evaluate-celebrate".

Among others involved in the founding of the centre was Jose Alvarez Icaza, a Mexican member of the Christian Family Movement who had represented the movement at Vatican II.
