Supporting Productive Landscapes in Guatemala - Extended Learning
Description: The Productive Landscapes Resilient to Climate Change and Strengthened Socioeconomic Networks in Guatemala project aims to increase climate resilience in productive landscapes and socio-economic systems in pilot municipalities that are threatened by climate change and climatic variability impacts, in particular hydro-meteorological events that are increasing in frequency and intensity. It will achieve this through a suite of key outcomes that range from enhancing institutional capabilities, supporting more resilient local economies, and increasing communities’ adaptive capacity. The initiative is supported through a grant from the Adaptation Fund (AF), and executed in Guatemala by the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (MARN) with the support of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) as the implementing agency.

Description: People fleeing high levels of violence in Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador—the countries that form the Northern Triangle of Central America (NTCA)—suffer further from limited access to medical care and are forced to contend with aggressive deportation policies that disregard their need for protection. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is treating people who've fled to Mexico from these areas, and is advocating for more humane reception policies so people running for their lives won't be treated as criminals.

Description: Guatemala is the wealthiest of Feed the Future’s 19 focus countries, so why do its stunting levels rival those of Yemen and Malawi? Anemic public health and social service spending exacerbate rising poverty and stark inequality. A changing climate and high exposure to natural hazards pose further challenges to the rural agrarian poor.
The CSIS Global Food Security Project traveled to Guatemala in late 2016 to investigate the largest Feed the Future portfolio in the Americas, its technical strategy, its sectoral and geographical distribution of investments, and its coordination efforts within and beyond U.S. programming.

Description: WOLA and the Seattle International Foundation, in conjunction with the Congressional Central America Caucus, launched the Central America Monitor–a new project to track and analyze U.S. assistance programs in the region and evaluate the progress in Central America to reduce violence and insecurity, strengthen the rule of law, improve transparency and accountability, protect human rights, and combat corruption. The Monitor will provide a valuable tool to identify the areas of progress and shortfalls of the policies being implemented in the region in a form that is useful for policymakers, donors, academics, and the public. In this panel discussion, WOLA and our partners discuss this new project and its initial findings. Learn more at: https://www.wola.org/cam/

Description: Over half of refugees worldwide are children. These children lose their childhoods to war, gang violence, forced recruitment, human trafficking, domestic abuse, and sexual and gender-based violence including rape and femicide. In the face of danger, children must make a difficult choice: stay where it is familiar and risk persecution and even death, or flee to the unknown in search of safety. This video traces the stories of six children from the Northern Triangle of Central America who fled violence in search of safety.

Description: Marco, a young gay man from Honduras, fled to Mexico after his life was threatened by gang members. He is one of the estimated 500,000 people who flee Central America each year, and enter Mexico seeking safety and a chance for a better life. The violence many of these refugees and migrants have experienced is not unlike that of individuals living through war.
