Promoting climate-resilient forest restoration and silviculture for the sustainability of water-related ecosystem services Approved July 2019 Est. implementation period 5.0 years
Improving the provision of water services by increasing the climate resilience of vulnerable coniferous forests.

Honduras ranks first on a list of the countries most affected by negative impacts from extreme climate-related events over the last two decades. 

This project will foster a paradigm shift in forest management towards a model that is based on the active participation of local communities and the private sector. It will promote the diversification of livelihoods in rural areas and create enabling conditions to improve the governance and financial stability of the forest sector. Associated benefits include an increase of water security, especially during the dry season; the protection of pine forests; the reduction of emissions through improved forest and land use; and economic and social benefits for households.

This project has an estimated lifespan of 5 years.
