  • Socio-economic Impacts of Natural Disaster: A Gender Analysis

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday 1 May 2004
    Objective: 
    Approach: 

    Hurricane Mitch battered south-western Honduras, the Pacific coastline of Nicaragua and El Salvador in 1998. A gender analysis shows how it affected women and men differently. The most significant direct impacts of natural disasters on women include curtailing their spare time, income, and productive activities. Women faced severe physical, financial, psychological, and social vulnerabilities in the aftermath of the hurricane. Reconstruction activities often involved women's labour but failed to adequately respond to women's needs.

  • Transfer of Environmentally Sound Technology Methodology in Latin American Industry: Honduras Case Study

    Publication date: 
    Sunday 1 January 2012
    Objective: 

    This report presents the case study of a Transfer of Environmentally Sound Technology methodology in different industries along a river basin in Honduras during the period 2008-2012. The project has managed, in three years, to bring about considerable changes to the three participating companies, all reporting a reduced contaminant concentration of their effluents as well as reduced costs, proving that green industrial processes are beneficial to both the environment and the financiers.

  • Climate adapted vilages. The Development Fund's model for local climate adaptation. Honduras

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday 1 January 2015
    Objective: 
    Approach: 

    The Climate Adapted Villages model aims to make farmers and local communities capable of organizing themselves, identifying climate threats and practicing climate smart agriculture, enabling them to adapt to the current consequences of a changing climate. The model focuses on building capacity and expertise in local communities, so that they can manage their own recourses and implement measures for climate change adaptation, in a systematic and effective way. Communities gain a strong ownership to the activities, and the method can be transferred of other areas.

  • Climate risk management for smallholder agriculture in Honduras

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday 1 January 2013
    Objective: 

    Agriculture is an important economic sector in Honduras, where rural poverty and food insecurity are high. One-third of the population lives on smallholder farms growing staple crops such as maize and beans. Climate hazards already damage crops and infrastructure, leading to income loss and food insecurity, and climate change will exacerbate this situation. The capacity of smallholders to adapt to this additional stress is limited due to low levels of income and education and to environmental degradation.
