Project for Enhancing the Rural Economic Competitiveness of Yoro

Project for Enhancing the Rural Economic Competitiveness of Yoro

This project will help small-scale farmers and indigenous Tolupan tribes of the Yoro department in central Honduras integrate into the market economy. It will also improve their territorial management practices and their organizational capacities, to give them a stronger voice and enable them to express their specific concerns to public and private entities.

To improve opportunities for increasing incomes, the project will help the tribes increase their grain production and expand their access to seeds, fertilizers and technical assistance. It will also help them gain access to technologies and investments, and will promote alliances among producers, service providers and processing and marketing enterprises.

The project will provide indigenous communities with legal services to help them clarify their land rights, and will promote the use of participatory community mapping to set the boundaries of territories and indigenous lands.
