The Access Initiative

Instituto Privado de Investigación sobre Cambio Climático (ICC) is an institution founded to face current and future challenges posed by climate change. ICC aims to develop research and promote actions contributing to the reduction of vulnerability, mitigation and adaptation to climate change in communities, production processes and infrastructure in the region. The Institute has five programs of work: climate and hydrology research; sustainability of production systems; integrated watershed management; disaster risk management; and capacity building and communication. Some of ICC's recent activities include training on climate change and the environment and a symposium on the water resources of Escuintla.
