Guatemala relies heavily on agriculture, both for food production and for employment. Unfortunately, agricultural production is vulnerable to adverse climate conditions and climate change scientists predict that extreme weather events are likely to become more common over the coming decades. A team of local PEP researchers set out to investigate the impact of climate change on agriculture and other social and economic factors as well as to provide a reliable indication of what will happen to food security if climate change causes reduced agricultural productivity or drought. Their analysis indicates that climate change poses a significant threat to food security in Guatemala, particularly due to the agricultural sector’s reliance on rain-fed irrigation systems. Find out more about the research methods, findings and policy recommendations in the following PEP publications:
