Q’eqchi’ best practices and livelihoods in the wetlands of El Estor, Izabal, Guatemala

As part of the Partners for Resilience country programme, the Guatemalan Red Cross and Wetlands International prepared a study on wetland-related best practices and livelihoods of the Maya Q’eqchi’ people of El Estor, Guatemala. The study systematizes their traditional and local knowledge. This knowledge allows their communities to take actions for climate change adaptation, disaster risk reduction, and ecosystem restoration and management, taking these wetland-related livelihoods as starting point.
