Vision Statement

This vision promotes the transformation of society into a culture of sustainable production and consumption, which manages equity, efficiency, and protection of the environment and natural resources with equity and efficiency and promotes adequate adaptation to climate change.

The coastal and marine ecosystems of the Republic of Honduras are the subject of threats associated with climate change […] Because of the economic importance they represent for the country, as the main source of livelihood for indigenous and Afro-Honduran groups and other coastal communities, and because of their high vulnerability, it is essential to implement strategies that promote / maintain the integrity and functioning of these ecosystems.
