Abstract This profile of Guatemala City focuses on the intertwined human and environmental dimensions driving urban space development. Using a socio-ecological approach, it shows current urban development depends on the city's historic trajectory. It shows aspects of Maya civilization and remnants of Spanish colonialism. It explores modernity and neocolonialism and discusses the potential for a sustainable development in the future. Emphasis is placed on socio-ecological challenges and benefits that the city could receive from new interventions. Finally it discusses contemporary ideas to foster urban development towards a more sustainable direction.
