Agro-Forestry Project for Indigenous of Honduras

by World Accord - International Development Agency
Agro-Forestry Project for Indigenous of Honduras

Summary

This project will help 80 poor indigenous families living in the dry corridor of Honduras. Using an agro-forestry model, it will diversify and improve the diet of at least 400 men, women and children and help create surpluses for sale, as well as enhance the environment and increase water conservation. Farming in this way will give the families added resiliency to climate change disasters that are plaguing Honduras.

Challenge

Smallholder farming families in Honduras face many challenges for agricultural production due to limited access to land suitable for agriculture. They are also confronted with the need to expand agricultural lands into forests that are nearby. In addition to this, climate change has created many droughts and floods and poor families are leaving the area to join caravans of refugees headed to the US.

Solution

This project helps small indigenous farming families to stay where they are and get more and better food from their small parcels of land. Often they end up with surplus they can sell to be able to purchase other things like medicines or education they need to thrive in their communities. Agro-forestry not only helps prevent losses due to floods and droughts, it helps build resiliency in the land and the people.

Long-Term Impact

In the longer term the 80 families in the project will have greater food security, health and educational opportunities for their children that they could not afford when hunger was always the driving issue.
