Populations in Honduras remain highly vulnerable to multiple and recurrent climate-related hazards—including droughts, earthquakes, floods, landslides, and tropical storms—which can exacerbate humanitarian needs and displace affected households. These hazards continue to intensify due to climate change and frequently damage crops and infrastructure, as well as undermine livelihoods. In addition, communities in southern and western Honduras, located along Central America’s Dry Corridor, face persisting food insecurity due to repeated drought that has hindered agricultural production and depressed household incomes amid high and rising prices for basic commodities.

USAID supports humanitarian partners in Honduras with emergency food assistance through emergency cash transfers for food, agricultural support to smallholder farmers, and training smallholder farmers to implement climate-resilient farming practices. USAID also funds early recovery, risk reduction, and resilience (ER4) activities by supporting partners to restore livelihoods, increase households’ financial resilience, and mitigate the impact of future shocks in areas particularly vulnerable to weather-related disasters. Moreover, USAID partners work with local organizations to mitigate and respond to protection concerns across Honduras, particularly among children and survivors of gender-based violence (GBV). As part of an integrated approach to protection programming, USAID partners are delivering GBV case management and psychosocial support services for vulnerable individuals.
