Honduras is among the top three countries in the world that are reported to be most vulnerable to predicted climate change effects.1 There are a high percentage of hurricanes, floods and landslides that naturally occur in Honduras, and these are projected to increase in the coming decades.2 Many of the countryâ's shantytowns are cut off from clean water and other resources after excessive flooding or landslides.3 Hondurasâ' economy depends heavily on agriculture and agricultural exports like coffee, bananas, and melons, and the effects of flooding on these products could cripple the livelihoods of thousands of families.4 In particular, Hondurasâ' coffee crops have been recently devastated by La Roya, a fungal disease.5

Honduras, the second poorest country in Central America, suffers from extraordinarily unequal distribution of income, as well as high underemployment. While historically dependent on the export of bananas and coffee, Honduras has diversified its export base to include apparel and automobile wire harnessing. Nearly half of Honduras's economic activity is directly tied to the US, with exports to the US accounting for 30% of GDP and remittances for another 20%. The US-Central America-Dominican Republic Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR) came into force in 2006 and has helped foster foreign direct investment, but physical and political insecurity, as well as crime and ...See More perceptions of corruption, may deter potential investors; about 70% of FDI is from US firms. The economy registered modest economic growth of 3.0%-4.0% from 2010 to 2012, insufficient to improve living standards for the nearly 65% of the population in poverty. An 18-month IMF Standby Arrangement expired in March 2012 and was not renewed, due to the country's growing budget deficit and weak current account performance. Public sector workers complained of not receiving their salaries in November and December 2012, and government suppliers are owed at least several hundred million dollars in unpaid contracts. The government announced in January 2013 that loss-making public enterprises will be forced to submit financial rescue plans before receiving their budget allotments for 2013. Show Less ;
