Species of agricultural biodiversity with food security potential
Agriculture is the main economic activity and source of livelihoods of ten communities located in the municipalities of Nahualá and Santa Catarina Ixtahuacán in the Mazá river basin of Guatemala. The agriculture and forestry systems as developed by these small-scale farmers help to meet the basic needs of their families. They use farming practices based on traditional knowledge and experiences passed on for generations, which allows these agriculture and forestry systems to cope with changes in climate and, therefore, build their resilience.
