On june 29, 2011 was launched the project "Addressing Climate Change Risks on Water Resources in Honduras; Increased Systemic Resilience and Reduced Vulnerability of the Urban Poor", in the city of Tegucigalpa, Honduras. This project will benefit more than 13,000 inhabitants of this city and is funded by the Adaptation Fund. Fundación Vida was also invited to participate in the launch meeting.
This project is implemented by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (SERNA) in coordination with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and it was one of the two projects first to be approved by the A Fund.
Prior to the official launching meeting, it was presented the project logical framework, as well as the operational and administrative rules and guidelines that will be applied during its implementation phase. Likewise, the person who will function as the project coordinator was introduced.
This meeting was attended by project beneficiaries and by members of the Inter-institutional Committee on Climate Change, which has been appointed as Steering Committee of the project. We expect that now, with the selection of the project coordinator, the project implementation will see a new dynamic, and first steps will be taken soon.
