Around 20 student leaders and COCODE members visited San Jose Mogollon, Nueva Concepcion, Escuintla last Thursday, to become familiar with the climate change adaptation measures that have been implemented in the Canoguitas Village.

The visit is part of the Community Adaptation to Climate Change training, and focuses in the tools to strengthen the capacities to adapt to the threats related to climate in the area.

During the visit, participants were able to learn more about chicken farming and backyard aquaculture as measures to adapt to climate change, as well as the ditch that mitigates floods in the nearby communities of the Coyolate River, as well as the riparian forest in the same river.
