The Metrópoli de los Altos Commonwealth and Agreca’s Environmental and Social Management Unit signed a letter of understanding. It describes providing training tools which aim to strengthen environmental education in seven municipalities in the department of Quetzaltenango, Guatemala.
The “Environmental Compliance in Guatemala» simulator’s virtual platform, developed by Cementos Progreso and the Guatemalan Chamber of Industry, received a group of 49 participants, which included commonwealth mayors, councilors, trustees, and technical personnel.
All of them will be trained in the following topics:
Participants are representatives of the Quetzaltenango, San Mateo, La Esperanza, Olintepeque, San Juan Ostuncalco, Salcaja, and Sibilia municipalities.
The objective of the training process is for users to understand which environmental legal regulations are in force in the country. At the same time, they contribute to capacity building and generating greater confidence and legal certainty.
The e- learning course is offered to university level students in engineering, agronomy, law, public administration, postgraduate courses, etc.
This partnership contributes to what Agreca already provides to forestry office managers and directors training. They will participate in the modules together with INAB Quetzaltenango.
