Although Guatemala is becoming increasingly known for the beauty and bounty of its natural resource base, much of the country's natural areas are inherently fragile and remain under continuous human pressures leading to their degradation. There are strong parallels with the dignity and destiny of many of the country's poorest people, forced to eke out a bare subsistence using traditional farming practices ill-suited to the steep highlands to which they have been forced to retreat or the easily degraded tropical lowlands where they have sought refuge. Improving natural resources management has long been an important part of the country's development plans supported by USAID, albeit something constrained in many ways by years of inequities, injustice and civil struggle. Region: Latin America and the Caribbean Task order: Guatemala: Environmental Lessons Learned and Strategic Objective Assessment.
