Our Mission in Honduras

For more than 30 years, the Alliance of Bioversity International and CIAT has supported the improvement of smallholder farming productivity and the transformation of food systems in Honduras, providing science-based solutions and technical assistance through the implementation of programs and projects that strengthen the capacities of farmers, national and local governments and other stakeholders. The projects’ priorities include sustainable agriculture, integrated natural resource management, and the development of climate change adaptation and mitigation measures.

This collaboration has led to significant achievements such as more efficient management of water resources, the development of sustainable value chains and inclusive business models, capacity building in the agricultural sector, and the creation of successful climate change strategies.
