Juan García Gonzalez working on his corn field in Las Flores, Jocotán, Guatemala, Mr Garcia is part of the Indigenous Council here. This part of the country is highly affected by climate change. Rainfall patterns in the last seven years have been unreliable, with too little or too irregular rainfall to get harvest of corn and beans. Many farmers have lost the seeds they plant. As the drought seems unending, the farmers diversify their income searching for employment as day labourers, travelling often for months at a time.
