Honduras Macuelizo

Honduras has the highest vulnerability in the world for natural disasters such as floods, landslides, droughts, forest fires. Building on work begun in 2008, in the Honduras Nueva Frontera program, CASM has started to expand into neighboring municipalities and counties as they continue to make a wide impact on food security in the Santa Barbara department.  This program promotes natural resource protection and implements conservation practices to improve agricultural production and mitigate the effects of climate change. This program also promotes crop diversification to improve diet, nutrition and income. Local alliances are formed with a wide variety of groups that help to strengthen food chains, and organize advocacy efforts that promote the rights of children and reduce violence in the communities. Youth are encourages to participate in activities that highlight the protection of the environment and natural resources.
