DESCRIPTION: The project will deliver technical assistance for sustainable, environmentally benign and productive livestock management to ladino and indigenous communities in a binational complex of protected areas in Nicaragua and Honduras, in order to elevate local peoples’ standard of living, protect water sources, and reduce deforestation and loss of biodiversity.
PURPOSE: Improved livestock management techniques are successfully implemented in ladino and indigenous farms in Mosquitia, leading to rigorously documented conservation of forest cover, biological diversity, and improved welfare of vulnerable communities
