Step by step for gender inclusion in climate-adapted sustainable agriculture initiatives for Guatemala
In order to address the threats that climate change poses to rural livelihoods, the Republic of Guatemala, along with the rest of the Central American region, has embarked on the design of adaptation and mitigation measures and policies for reduce emissions and adapt food production systems to reduce their vulnerability and increase their resilience, at national and regional levels. Among them, policies and programs of sustainable agriculture adapted to the climate have been promoted, which seek to improve the production and food security of productive systems, while improving adaptation and contributing to the mitigation of greenhouse gases. An example of these initiatives at the regional level has been the approval of the “Climate Adapted Sustainable Agriculture Strategy (ASAC) for the SICA Region (2018-2030)”.
