Belizean conservationists participate in exchange in Guatemala

Posted: Monday, October 3, 2022. 9:58 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Women representatives from the Vaca Plateau which included Friends of Vaca Forest Reserve and Canan Association, as well as members of the Friends for Conservation and Development (FCD) Environmental Youth Group and Cayo Watershed Conservation Alliance traveled to Uacaxtun, Peten, Guatemala.

The representatives participated in an exchange visit to learn about the production activities that are carried out by women in the community concession of Uaxactun located in the Maya Biosphere Reserve.

The activities included handicrafts using corn husks and the processing of xate and ramon (breadnut).

 A hands-on training was provided to the group who learned how to create dolls using the husk and silk. 

The group also interacted firsthand with the women leaders of Uaxactun who shared their experiences on the importance of community and sustainable use of the forest.

The exchange was made possible through the GIZ Selva Maya Programme.
