Description

The purpose of the Joint Programme is to develop environmental governance mechanisms to strengthen the capacity for adaptation to climate change in Guatemala, especially for the most vulnerable and poorest of the population. To achieve this, the Programme intends to strengthen those mechanisms which allow for the proper administration of environmental interests and that foster adaptability to climate changes at a) at the national level, through interinstitutional coordination and strategical implementation of three relevant national policies (social, environmental and water resources), b) at subnational level, focusing primarily on the strengthening of financial and administrative environmental management, specifically of the drought corridor of Guatemala, and c) at the local level, through pilot project interventions in communities and municipalities.
