45 community leaders from San Jose El Idolo, and from Monte Gloria, visited Nueva Concepcion yesterday, to become familiar with the practices to adapt to climate change that have been promoted in the area.

On the fieldtrip, participants learned about the laying hens, and the tanks for tilapia fish projects, which are fed with lemna, aquatic plant that is harvested as part of both projects as a measure to adapt to climate change.

Likewise, they visited the ditch alongside the Coyolate River; work made to mitigate floods and that has been effective for the last years, as well as the Coyolate Biological Corridor.

This fieldtrip was organized as part of the Community Adaptation to Climate Change training that is developed in Suchitepequez. This was part of the adaptation to climate change module.
