Another Participant Testimonial
“I work as a specialist in integrated international development and climate change adaptation in the rural highlands of Central America. My team works to bring innovative solutions to pressing problems of watershed degradation, food insecurity, poverty, and crop loss related to a combination of human and climate factors. Our integrated approach includes necessary elements of generating adequate income and viable agricultural production; improving management of environmental resources; respecting local culture and participatory voice; and ensuring human well-being indices.
We have determined that holistic practices have great potential application for five key problem areas related to water, soil, terrain, agriculture, and forest management in fragile, stressed environments. The course helped me learn vocabulary useful for talking to others about improving practices. The basics will be used to 1) generate a small demonstration plot showing the ability to optimize use of very small spaces; 2) design pilot projects in each of the five areas identified, among the first of their kind on all of Central America; 3) further my own studies into economic valuation of soils and biodiversity in community decision-making, and 4) we hope, start the process for bringing a research and practice hub formally to Guatemala to serve Central America.” – Racheal Shenyo, Guatemala
