1. Guatemala strategies


Guatemala is a country located in Central America, bordering Mexico (to its north).

It is a country blessed with incredible natural beauty, a rich history, and friendly people. Its stable currency and strong business sector make it an attractive destination for foreign investment.

However, Guatemala suffers from issues of child malnutrition. This is a complex problem that requires long-term, sustainable solutions. In solving country-wide problems, society frequently needs to make sacrifices and choose a wise path.

Education for all and transparent governance to reduce corruption are two essential tools to tackle these issues.

Please note that this strategies page currently focuses, not on the virtues, but only on specific issues that need correction, or improvement.

[խ] Questions we can make about Guatemala, answered

General issues

Introduction: Guatemala is a country with little more than 100,000 square kilometers and, in 2022, sixteen million inhabitants. In the sixteenth century, “conquistadores” established a Spanish colony, controlling Guatemala’s indigen populations of Mayan origin. Mostly due to its rugged terrain, lack of roads and other means of communication, and its very rich and varied natural resources, fauna and vegetation, more than half of Guatemala’s population in 2022 is indigenous, and they keep a significant part of their traditional customs. Its mostly white, or mixed population mostly concentrates in Guatemala’s principal modern urban centers and agricultural and industry-productive lands, and has produced a vibrant developing economy, but a large part of its indigenous population still lives in poverty.
