Planned project

PRODET – Programa Desarrollo Económico Territorial

01.09.2020 - 31.03.2025

In Nicaragua, the department of Nueva Segovia is known for its very high poverty level but also for its important economic growth potential, a dynamic productive sector and well-cooperating municipalities. In this context, the program promotes territorial economic development favouring vulnerable populations. Capacities and the coordination of public and private actors shall be enhanced, institutions strengthened, innovation systems supported, and productivity as well as competitiveness improved.


Supporting Civil Society Organizations in Nicaragua

01.08.2020 - 31.12.2024

SDC and other like-minded donors are engaged in enhancing the democratic and public policy processes in Nicaragua. A strong civil society is essential to the quality and sustainability of this effort. The proposed program will promote citizen participation, strengthen capacities of Civil Society Organizations and foster informed policy dialogue. 


Strengthening Systems that Combat Corruption and Impunity in Central America

01.07.2020 - 30.04.2027

The national systems that combat corruption and impunity in Central America are weak. Led by the Organization of American States and the United Nations, mechanisms were set up in Honduras and in Guatemala to promote rule law by strengthening the cohesion and coordination within governments, the judiciary system, civil society, and anti-corruption and anti-money-laundering entities. SDC contributes to both mechanism to support the fight against organized crime and impunity, and enhancing knowledge management between the two mechanisms.


Planned project

Community-driven watershed management for climate change adaptation in Nicaragua

01.01.2020 - 31.12.2024

In Nicaragua’s “dry corridor” strong climate variability results in reduced agricultural production and scarcity of water. The project will contribute to: the dialog among all actors of selected watersheds; commonly agreed upon action planning; and community-led rehabilitation of ecosystems. This will enhance the resilience of poor parts of the population confronted with climate change and will allow a healthy agro-ecological balance to be re-established in the watersheds.


Planned project

Inclusive Cities

01.01.2019 - 30.04.2030

The programme promotes inclusive governance in the north-central region of Nicaragua. It strengthens the links between secondary cities and their rural environs, with a focus on participatory planning, economic development and environmental management. Secondary cities play a key role to reduce internal development gaps and promote decentralization. The intervention will capitalise twelve years of SDC experience with local governance in rural municipalities in the same region.


Planned project

Society, Culture and Memory

01.09.2018 - 30.06.2030

The programme’s objective is to strengthen and diversify the voices and spaces in civil society from the perspective of culture and memory. Using competitive funds and making contributions to key actors, the aim is to update the offer in training, education and professionalization of the sector. The programme responds to a demand of civil society and expands SDC’s commitment in the field of culture, the recovery of identities and memory in Nicaragua.


Rural Water Supply Network (Core contribution)

15.03.2018 - 31.12.2020

Universal access to safe, affordable water is at the core of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the realisation of human rights. Achieving this in rural areas presents some particular challenges linked to poverty, discrimination and poor infrastructure. The Rural Water Supply Network (RWSN) is the only global network to offer powerful, effective mechanisms to share expertise and collaborate with local and global partners to trial and scale up innovation and to raise the quality and professionalism in rural water supplies.


Cocoa value chain

01.01.2018 - 31.12.2022

Actors in the Central American cocoa value chain improve their productivity, establish public-private alliances, respect economic, social and cultural rights, and reduce their environmental impact. Thanks to the program 4,500 producer families will increase their net annual income by at least 10%, while 4,000 young adults and 2,000 women gain access to sustainable jobs. This will boost the local economy in the poor and peripheral areas in which cocoa is grown.  


WOLA Central America Monitor Single Phase

15.12.2017 - 14.12.2019

The WOLA Central America Monitor systematically assesses the progress (and regress) made to strengthen the rule of law, to reduce violence, and to combat corruption in the countries of the northern triangle (Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador). For this purpose it uses a set of quantitative and qualitative indicators which are publicly accessible. Data-based progress monitoring will provide the international community with a valuable basis for donor coordination and for the policy dialogue with the governments of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.


Gobernanza del riesgo en Centroamérica

01.12.2017 - 31.12.2021

Centroamérica es vulnerable al cambio y la variabilidad climática así como a otras amenazas geológicas que ponen en riesgo la vida de alrededor de 19 millones de personas y su desarrollo económico. El proyecto promueve la gobernanza regional para mejorar la efectividad en la reducción de los desastres y la adaptación al cambio climático para contribuir al desarrollo resiliente. Promueve acciones de preparación y respuesta a desastres, así como la formación especializada y de calidad en reducción de riesgos de desastres en carreras universitarias seleccionadas.


Strengthening responsible inclusive finance practices and building capacity in Central America & Caribbean by leveraging SPTF’s global work

01.11.2017 - 31.12.2021

Application of the Universal Standards for Social Performance Management (USSPM) by inclusive financial service providers can ensure that low-income and vulnerable people will improve their livelihoods as a result of client-centric financial services offered responsibly. The Social Performance Task Force is best positioned to promote the application of the USSPM globally - and with REDCAMIF in Central America & Caribbean - as effective market transparency and self-regulation tool for the global inclusive financial inclusion industry.


Strengthening the Systems that Combat Corruption and Impunity (MACCIH-CICIG) in Central America

01.07.2017 - 30.06.2020

Honduras and Guatemala requested the Organization of American States and the United Nations to create mechanisms to combat corruption and impunity. The Support Mission Against Corruption and Impunity in Honduras and the International Commission Against Impunity in Guatemala are supported by international cooperation in improving the justice system, the public prosecutor, and the anti-corruption and Human Rights protection agencies. COSUDE contributes to existing mandates and strengthens regional interchange.
