Strengthening tenure security for forest communities in the Maya Biosphere Reserve in Petén, Guatemala


From: 01/09/2022

To: 01/09/2024

Budget: $2,000,000

Partners: Asociación de Comunidades Forestales del Petén (ACOFOP)

Stakeholders: 5,012 families from 55 communities with multiplier effects on the sustainable forest economy

The potential national impact of restructuring the ANOFCG is estimated to reach 77,000 families as possible beneficiaries if the project manages to promote the issue of rights beyond the Maya Biosphere Reserve.

At the international level, this program would be a contributing factor to the impact on large populations, Indigenous Peoples, and local communities in the Amazon, Mexico, and Central America, and possibly Indonesia or the Congo basin. Here we estimate the potential impact, as a conservative figure, in several hundred thousand.
