The project will address mangrove degradation and loss through enhancing the competitiveness of artisanal fishing companies and organizations so as to ensure their sustainable and environmentally responsible inclusion in the economy while preserving the mangrove ecosystem on which their economy depends and increasing their resilience to climate change.
The objective is to determine the renewable energy potential in the Honduras Bay Islands and evaluate the feasibility of using wind and solar energy sources. The assessment will be used to prepare a strategy in order to reduce progressively the use of fossil fuel in the islands.
The objective of the proposal is to strengthen low carbon development and reduce vulnerability to climate change through implementation of the key elements in the Action Plans for Cochabamba, Bolivia; Managua, Nicaragua; and Tegucigalpa in Honduras. The three Action Plans were financed through project NDF C40.
The main objectives of the NDF project are to integrate climate change adaptation actions into the comprehensive neighbourhood upgrading plans in greater Tegucigalpa; as well as to strengthen capacity and the knowledge base of the Honduran Social Investment Fund about adaptation to climate change.

The project has contributed to the resilience of agriculture production systems, food security and poverty reduction through the reintroduction and adequate management of climate-resilient, short-cycle cañahua varieties in the Bolivian highlands.
The aim is to implement a participatory and differentiated strategy of adaptation to the effects of climate change in the Bolivian highlands, with emphasis on the retraction of glaciers in the Sajama National Park and the Mururata and Illimani glaciers.
The project aims to improve the industrial and service sectors competitiveness by increasing national capacity on energy efficiency, through technical assistance, awareness raising and investment promotion on energy efficiency.
The IDEAS Program finances pioneering initiatives that promote projects in the fields of renewable energy, energy efficiency and energy access in Latin America and the Caribbean region.
