Complete Title: 
Tacaná watersheds, Guatemala and Mexico : transboundary water governance and implementation of IWRM through local community action
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

Beginning with a grassroots approach to water management, increased knowledge and information and the improvement of environmental health and livelihoods, the region around the Tacaná volcano on the border of Guatemala and Mexico has shown the way forward in scaling up local level approaches to national level initiatives. WANI and partners set up a demonstration project in the Tacaná Watersheds, which combined pilot livelihoods projects and bottom-up integrated governance of water resources management. This case study describes the situation, activities taken, and results achieved during this process.
