LANDac | Guatemala Blog Series Update – Land governance in Guatemala: a new setback

Over the course of 2018 and 2019 Jur Schuurman has zoomed in on the story of Guatemalan land issues from many perspectives in this blog series. In this recently published update, he updates us on some worrying recent developments in Guatemala: the Secretaría de Asuntos Agrarios (the Department for Agrarian Affairs – SAA), created as a corollary of the Peace Agreements of 1996, has been closed down by the Guatemalan president. This will have a great impact on the monitoring and solving of land conflicts.
