Description

Since the 1990s agriculture, pollution and poor land management have been taking a severe toll on the river system on the Mexico/Guatemala border. A major culprit is the region's economically-important coffee growing industry. But recently there have been big changes in the way much of this coffee is grown, changes driven by the coffee industry itself. Global demand for certified and organically grown coffee is booming and producing a dividend for river systems in an area that currently produces half the worlds coffee.
