Central American dry corridor: An exploration of the potential of a job creation strategy for Guatemala and Honduras

This document aims to explore the context, reasons and effects on livelihoods of policies and programs to improve or adapt to the impacts of climate change in the Central American Dry Corridor (CDC), with a focus on Guatemala and Honduras. In particular, it explores the situation of environmental and socioeconomic vulnerability in the region and the institutional responses to face the growing challenges, both in terms of international cooperation and government actions and plans. Based on all this, a series of considerations are made of the potential of an job creation approach in the region, as a strategy to generate decent work together with adaptation to climate change through public investment programs in green infrastructure.
