Indigenous farmers in Petn are not well versed about the benefits of the different land title programs. Asociacin de Comunidades Campesinas Indgenas para el Desarrollo Integral de Petn (ACDIP) creates educational materials in Spanish and Q'eqchi' and provides technical assistance to develop skills in using alternative legal methods of land management according to indigenous practices. At the IAF we support community-led solutions to enhance governance in Guatemala. ACDIP's activities strengthen communities through education and training and build peer-to-peer learning and action networks.This grant is part of the IAF's efforts to address the root causes of irregular migration in Central America.
