DescriptionThis project will demonstrate integrated ecosystem and watershed management for sustainable rural development with conservation of globally significant biodiversity, carbon sequestration and protection of national and international hydrological resources in three areas in Honduras. GEF resources will be used to incorporate integrated ecosystem and watershed management objectives, principles, techniques and practices into a rural development programme, called FONADERS 2, implemented by the Ministry of Agriculture and financed by the International Fund for Agriculture and Development (IFAD). This integrated and complementary approach will reduce rural poverty as well as sustainably manage local natural resources and secure global environmental benefits. The project will serve as a demonstration for activities outside protected areas throughout the Mesoamerican Biological Corridor.
Implementation StatusAs result of project consolidation, in this quarter the project started operating through the modality of quarterly advance budget assignments, thus speeding up the execution rate. Several relevant training actions were carried out aimed at strengthening the institutional counterparts. The most relevant were: Training course on GIS and training course on participatory planning. A booklet on Local Empowerment in the Custody Chain as part of the forest certification process was published. Two local projects for ecotourism initiatives were approved. A cooperation agreement was signed with the NGO AHDESA for building energy saving stoves and training local people in its use in 4 municipalities in TPA. Five demonstration farms started functioning in the same pilot area. In SPPA a training activity was carried out on honey production as part of the demonstration farm development actions. A workshop on legal framework and policy development to mainstream IEWM was carried out in coordination with AFNPP project and the Agenda Forestal Hodurena.
