"Reforestation"

"Reforestation"

The palm plantation has received support from the Guatemalan government for “reforestation”. However, locals refer to the african palm plantation as a “green desert”. Vast tracts of land that were once home to diverse crops are now used to grow one crop by a single corporation. African palms are an example of a monocrop that deprives the local food system, alters the ecosystem and offers only irregular and periodic employment opportunities to the local population.
