Municipality Strenghtening on Land Conflict
In 2013, Alta Verapaz’s Secretariat of Agrarian Businesses registered 252 land conflicts affecting thousands of rural families.
In partnership with Mercy Corps, ADRIG resolves agrarian conflicts using Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) methods. This methodology facilitates dialogue and negotiation between the parties and discourages violent demonstrations that only undermine governance and peace.
To date, 25 land conflicts have been resolved benefiting 700 rural families who had access to land in a peaceful way and have secured land stability for their families’ future.
