Project description

The objective of the project is to strengthen the connectivity between PAs and production landscapes and to generate social and economic benefits in the dry-humid biological corridor of southwestern Honduras. The project aims to build upon the initiatives already identified in the baseline, and it is expected that funding from the GEF will help counter the loss of dry and humid forest areas, carbon stocks, biodiversity of global significance, and stem the occurrence of land degradation.
