ACDIP will register 25 indigenous communities in their respective municipalities which will allow the communities to organize officially and govern themselves according to their ancestral traditions. They will also engage local governments and governmental agencies to form alliances with the goal of ensuring that these communities can gain access to sustainability use natural resources. ACDIP will further support these efforts by creating materials in Spanish and Q'eqchi' to educate community members, international donors and government officials on the effects various economic activities are having on water sources and land access.
