Territorial Governance in the Honduran Muskitia

Planned project

Switzerland contributes to the strengthening of territorial governance in the Muskitia region fostering a coordinated approach with other donors. The program supports the recognition of the rights of indigenous and afro-descendent peoples and promotes governance mechanisms that help to reduce conflicts derived from historic marginalization and lack of access to basic services implementing a “leave no one behind” approach. The program supports the interaction between local governments and territorial organizations to implement the legal framework and the Convention on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (ILO Convention 169.)
