The Sotz’il – Waqxaqi’ B’alam weather station was installed at the head of the department of Chimaltenango, Guatemala.

The Sotz’il organization made the installation possible with the scientific technical advice of the ICC, to complement ancestral knowledge with data from the Sotz’il – Waqxaqi’ B’alam station.

“The importance of a weather station lies in the collection of data from a specific place, which allows the creation of a record of climate changes, essential for analysis, planning and decision making in favor of all sectors,” explains Alex Guerra, general director of the ICC.
