CONTEXT

In January 2019, the bi-national Peru-Honduras project "Improving governance and land use management " was launched, which is being implemented with support from the EUROCLIMA+ programme, through the "Forests, biodiversity and ecosystems" (FBE) component, financed by the European Union and co-financed by the governments of Germany, France and Spain. It is implemented by a consortium of 4 organisations: the company PUR Projet, the Helvetas Honduras Foundation, the Madera Verde Foundation, and the Amazonia Viva Foundation. The project, which ends in December 2020, has been supporting local public and private actors and small producers in developing tools and strengthening capacities to address the causes of forest degradation and loss.

As part of the project's development process, the implementing organisations organised a first Binational Exchange Forum in Catacamas, Honduras in November 2019, and on this occasion, the second Forum will be organised by the Amazonia Viva Foundation in Peru. Toward this end, an enriching agenda has been planned to showcase progress in forest management and climate change in Peru and Honduras.
