Honduras - Inclusive territorial economic development in the Muskitia region. The program strengthens territorial governance, improves the business climate and increases access to services for indigenous peoples. Phase 1 (2017-2020)

Departamento Federal de Asuntos Exteriores DFAE Agencia Suiza para el Desarrollo y la Cooperación COSUDE / División América Latina y el Caribe / Oficina de Cooperación Suiza en Honduras | Published July 6, 2016  -  Deadline October 3, 2016

The program contributes to the establishment of new models of inclusive territorial economic development that increases the competiveness of the indigenous producers of the Muskitia, through participation in value chains such as cocoa, fishing and basic grains. The program takes advantage of the region’s geographic location on the sea and and its borders with Nicaragua and Colombia that allow access to national and international markets.

The program is relevant because it strengthens shared governance, indigenous territorial development and horizontal harmonization among indigenous actors and the private business sector. In addition, it increases the capacity of the municipalities and central government agencies to respond to the indigenous peoples and the needs of the private sector.

The program generates employment and income, invigorates the local economy and contributes to food security in a context of historical exclusion and chronic nutritional deficit. It also increases the circulating capital needed for economic activity, reduces migration and loss of human capital.

The program helps reduce the insecurity generated by organized crime through the creation of alternative economic opportunities for the young people in rural and urban zones.

This initiative is aligned with the regional and national policies and plans, with potential strategic alliances with other development partners such as the United Nations and Germany, and with the Muskitia Alliance project of the Economic Development Sector Cabinet. In addition, the program causes changes in the cooperation models, from a vertical system to a horizontal system oriented to structural processes and changes constructed with the indigenous population.

Building on the system of indigenous governance, the program strategy is characterized by facilitating and consolidating processes that favour inclusive territorial economic de-velopment, articulating the indigenous economy with the local, national and international market economy. It also influences the government to organize the economic development strategy and public investment in the Muskitia zone.

In the first phase, under the mandate modality, the priority is to strengthen indigenous institutionality, social organization and territorial governance structure through cacao value chains, fishing and basic grains. The territorial councils facilitate dialogue and agreement among public and private stakeholders to make the first productive investments. In the succeeding phases, building on solid territorial institutionality in the Musktia, the priority will be contributions to the territorial councils and MASTA with the goal of ensuring the sustainability of the process.

The program impacts approximately 10,000 families living in the department of Gracias a Dios and indirectly 286 communities, 6 municipalities and 12 indigenous territorial councils due to its territorial nature and structural changes produced. 85% of this population belongs to the Miskitu people and 15% is comprised of Garífuna, Pech and Tawakas peoples.

The direct participants are: the territorial councils and national indigenous structures such as MASTA, Tawaka, Pech and Garífuna Federations; the production groups of 8 territorial councils; processors, local national and international markets, support services; regulators; the municipalities and the municipal association.

The principal partners are: Ministry of Agriculture and Ranching; National Directorate of Fisheries; Forest Conservation Institute (ICF); Ministry of Energy, Natural Resources, Environment and Mines “My Environment”; Association of Municipalities of Honduras (AM-HON); the private business sector; and the alliances with donors in the territory such as UN, USAID, Germany, and the World Bank in the framework of the donors’ round table
