Mapas preliminares de estado de biodiversidad para su 6IN - Honduras

Al comienzo del proceso de 6IN, se planteó el reto a las Partes del Convenio sobre la Diversidad Biológica a duplicar la cantidad de mapas utilizados desde su 5IN a su 6IN. ¿Está en camino de enfrentar este desafío? ¡Tenemos buenas noticias para usted! Al utilizar el UN Biodiversity Lab y los conjuntos de datos globales disponibles, creamos 18 mapas preliminares de estado de biodiversidad para su país. Los datos dentro de estos mapas pueden ayudarlo a informar sobre indicadores clave relacionados con las Metas de Aichi 5, 11, 12, 14 y 15.

Equator Initiative Case Study - Garifuna Emergency Committee Of Honduras

This women-led initiative arose in 1998 in response to the devastating effects of Hurricane Mitch on sixteen agrarian Garifuna communities. These peoples of Afro-indigenous descent have traditionally been socioeconomically marginalized in Honduras, and their agricultural livelihoods were hard hit by the loss of 70% of the country’s crops due to heavy flooding. Beyond initial disaster relief efforts, the initiative has sought to improve local resilience to future environmental disasters.

Equator Initiative Case Study – Association of Water Committees of the Southern Sector of Pico Bonito National Park (AJAASSPIB)

This association of 27 village water committees located in the southern buffer zone of Honduras’s Pico Bonito National Park oversees the management of micro-watersheds and trains local communities in reforestation, conservation and the application of environmentally friendly technologies. A primary focus is ensuring local access to potable water in a region prone to shortages.

Equator Initiative Case Study - Agency for the Development of the Mosquitia (MOPAWI)

For more than 25 years, the Agency for the Development of the Mosquitia (in Miskita, Mosquitia Pawisa Apiska – MOPAWI) has worked to engage local and indigenous communities in the integrated management of the Río Plátano Biosphere Reserve and other protected areas in northeastern Honduras. Located within the Mosquitia area, the reserve contains the largest intact rainforest north of the Amazon, and was classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982 in recognition of its natural and cultural heritage values.
