Managing the Tacana Volcano Watershed

In the San Marcos department of Guatemala, overexploitation of natural resources, high population density, settlements and agriculture combined with extreme weather events are increasingly undermining the region's food and water security. IUCN, through its Tacana project, is making sure that natural resources are used in a sustainable way and that nature itself is used in managing the volcano watershed.
