Projects completed

To our satisfaction we have developed six projects related to the field of watershed management, which have allowed us to do work from Haiti to the Jesus Maria River basin in Costa Rica. We intertwined our efforts and support with organizations such as the Inter-American Development Bank and the United Nations Development Program. Learn about these projects here.

  • Regional Program for Innovation, Learning and Communication for Adaptive Watershed Co-management (FOCUENCAS II)

The program’s goal was to develop adaptive and sustainable watershed co-management models applicable to representative biophysical, socioeconomic and institutional conditions of Central America. These models have been designed and they are being validated and appropriated by local and national entities of Honduras and Nicaragua. The project was funded by ASDI for the 2004-2011 period.

  • Project for the Sustainable Management of Natural Resources and Watersheds of the Mesoamerican Biological Corridor in the Honduran Atlantic (PROCORREDOR)

The project’s objective was to contribute to improving the quality of life of the population through the maintenance and restoration of ecological and economic functions of the Caribbean Biological Corridor. The project intervened in eight municipalities in the department of Atlántida, including: Tela, Arizona, Esparta, La Masica, San Francisco, El Porvenir, La Ceiba and Jutiapa. PROCORREDOR was funded by the European Union and implemented in partnership with GTZ, EAP and the CATIE National Technical Office in Honduras, July 2008 to November 2012.
