Productive and Commercial Value Chain of Orchids in Alta and Baja Verapaz
To improve the living conditions of extremely poor rural families of Alta and Baja Verapaz through integrating and developing a productive and commercial orchid chain, transforming rudimentary and extractive orchidology in a lucrative, sustainable and conservation-enhancing occupation for such families. Orchid greenhouses constitute an alternative to generate income for rural families and have, in fact, been utilized by community groups located near tourist routes to offer orchids to foreign and national visitors. In the municipality of Purulhá, Baja Verapaz orquideology is carried out by local organizations whose objective is to reproduce orchids. One of the dangers is the widespread and uncontrolled extraction of orchids from the forests, increasing the risk of extinction of certain species and disruption of natural habitats.
