Strengthen Climate Resiliency in Central America

by Trees Water & People


Each year, Trees, Water & People identifies educational opportunities that increase the capacity of our partners in Central America to combat climate change. Local workshop and certification programs are incredible opportunities for these enviro-advocates, and we need your help to get them there. These courses will help to build their understanding of protected areas management with particular focus on climate-smart agriculture, ecosystem services, and sustainable use of natural resource.

Rural and underprivileged communities are, and will continue to be, the ones most negatively impacted by the effects of climate change. Whether it be drought, flood, and/or catastrophic crop failure by disease, communities already at a disadvantage will see their lives become even harder in the face of a more extreme environment. However, this doesn't have to be the case. By gaining hands-on training to create resilient food systems and protected areas, these communities can thrive.


Climate change is a global challenge, however the impacts can be fought on a local scale. Preparing leaders from some of the most at-risk communities with hands-on learning opportunities is critical. Rene and Armando are our key partners who, with your help, will strengthen their communities' capacity to adapt to climate change by attending workshops. Rene is the Subdirector and lead Project Manager at CEASO in Honduras and Armando is the Director of Arboles y Agua para el Pueblo in El Salvador.

Long-Term Impact

Trees, Water & People works alongside communities to identify and develop smart solutions to some of the world's toughest socio-ecological challenges. We believe one of the most powerful approaches is through community leadership and knowledge sharing. By training committed leaders directly, we will impact at least 100 individuals indirectly across each community. As such, climate change education provides a long-term and practical framework to empower at-risk communities.
