Honduras Nueva Frontera

Honduras has the highest vulnerability in the world for natural disasters such as floods, landslides, droughts, forest fires. Building on work begun in 2008, the current Nueva Frontera 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, conserve natural resources and contribute to the comprehensive development of the local municipality. Youth are encourages to participate in activities that highlight the protection of the environment and natural resources.  Here are photos from Church World Service photographer Sean Hawkey.
