Human Conservation in Central America, Summary of a Conference (Guatemala, Central America).
Conservation Foundation, Washington, DC.
This booklet is a resume consisting chiefly of extracts from papers that were presented at a conference on Human Conservation in Central America, held in Guatemala in 1965, as well as from discussions that took place during the conferences. With cooperation of numerous organizations and guidance from the Conservation Foundation, a discussion of problems relating to conditions of human existence in Central America was concluded. Based on the principal point of view that the problems faced in Central America are dynamic and their importance transcends local significance, an attempt was made to evaluate the problems within the scope of the next 25 years. Multiple factors were considered including the complex social structure, geographic variations, economic organization, levels of education, availability of resources, and broad diversification in the field of agriculture. Several statistics and graphs are used to illustrate the economics and agricultural conditions of the region. (BL)
