Guatemala to develop ambitious agroforestry project
An ambitious project to be developed over the next 20 years in a Guatemalan reserve for protecting water springs, seeks to capture 1.8 million tons of carbon dioxide to help correct climate change in the planet.
The project is the first to be financed in Latin America by the Livelihood Fund, created in 2008 by the Danone Fund for Nature.
Guatemala’s NGO Fundaeco will be the coordinator of the environmental project that counts on the participation of the National Forestry Institute, through its Forestry Incentives Program.
