Despite a large amount of information, the documents made available by the bank do not provide a description of the project. Thus, we selected the excerpt below as an expression of the possible threats that it can represent the IPLC's.
"The project will not be acquiring land. However, activities within Component 1 of the project will assist communities in recovering and systematizing historical evidence and customary knowledge of land management. These tools aim to strengthen enabling conditions for indigenous and local communities to secure land and forest tenure. The project acknowledges the risks of working with indigenous and local communities that do not possess communal land tittles, given possible future loss of access to the land and resources. Opportunities to create synergies with other Bank financed projects, such as the Guatemala Forest Investment Project (FIP), should be considered given it could provide a platform for dialogue with governmental agencies to further land titling efforts and guarantee land right for IPs are respected. The project will refrain from working with lands under dispute or conflict."
