TAA/JCS Responds to SATIIM’s Call for Financial Accountability

Pablo Mis, the executive director of the Julian Cho Society, responded to SATIIM late this evening. The release from J.C.S. says that under the project, TAA/JCS supported the community consent process with over five thousand people, together with village leaders, elders and expert knowledge holders.  The release goes on to say that they deployed the Maya Boundary Harmonization process with twenty-five communities. This process, they say, resulted in multiple inter-boundary agreements in accordance with the agreed-upon process between the Government of the Belize and Maya parties. Moreover, the project also enabled the legal representation of several communities, including Jalacte, San Miguel and Santa Cruz, before the courts, according to the release. In addition to all of this, the project directly supported ongoing negotiations with the Government of Belize, including the development of a third-party inventory. The Julian Cho Society says that they have since been able to secure yet another multi-year extension to continue to support the implementation of the 2015 Consent Order through their partnership with the Land Tenure Fund.
