Coffee waste water treatment in Guatemala

In the department of San Marcos in Guatemala, water plays an essential role in the production of coffee, which makes it crucial for the livelihoods of the local people. As part of its Tacana project, IUCN provides support, advice and funding to design a water treatment plant which will decrease the negative impacts of wastewater generated through the processing of coffee.
