Build Better, Build Right: A New Tool for Sustainable, Climate-Resilient Infrastructure

Honduras is one of the world’s most vulnerable countries to the effects of climate change. With rising temperatures, it has borne the brunt of ever more frequent severe weather events, from droughts to hurricanes to floods to landslides and more. Climate models predict that these effects will become even more severe in the near future.

Honduras has mixed land uses and faces tough challenges in striking the right balance between development activities and environmental concerns. On many occasions, infrastructure projects have been developed without proper planning or consideration of environmentally sensitive locations. Additionally, there is often poor coverage of basic services, which in turn leads to social conflicts across the country.
