Audit rips US climate change program in Guatemala

Tuesday, May 10, 2016

A $25 million U.S.-funded project to help Guatemala combat global warming is being slammed as another taxpayer-backed boondoggle after a new audit highlighted a series of problems -- including numerous inaccuracies in the group's work and a failure to produce a required long-term plan.

The grant was awarded to the nonprofit Rainforest Alliance by USAID as part of a broader effort to fight climate change abroad.
