Using Forests to Enhance Resilience to Climate Change: Case Study of the role of forests in contributing to adaptation of drinking water system in Tegucigalpa, Honduras

This country case study is the result of activities undertaken in Honduras under the study Using Forests to Enhance Resilience to Climate Change (ForCC). The ForCC project seeks to assess the role of forests in boosting social and environmental resilience through ecosystem-based adaptation to climate change using a 20-50 year time horizon.

This document is an output of a CIFOR-led entitled: “Using Forests to Enhance Resilience to Climate Change” (ForCC). This project included studies in three countries (Burkina Faso, Honduras, and Lao PDR) and a state of knowledge report. This project was commissioned by the Program on Forest (PROFOR) Grant No. 099755, and the Trust Fund for Environmentally and Socially Sustainable Development (TFESSD) Grant No. TF099755, and was implemented in collaboration with CIRAD (Burkina Faso case study), CATIE (Honduras Case Study), and the Forestry Research Center and the Department of Forestry (Lao PDR Case Study).
