Infrastructure and small scale private sector development for coastal cities of Honduras and Nicaragua : supporting responsible tourism strategies for poverty reduction (English)

Under the sponsorship of the Norwegian Trust Fund for Private Sector and Infrastructure (NTFPSI), a grant for Central America was established: 'infrastructure and small scale private sector development for coastal cities of Honduras and Nicaragua - supporting responsible tourism strategies for poverty reduction', which will contribute to poverty reduction and open greater economic opportunities for lower income groups in coastal municipalities of Honduras and Nicaragua, regions of great poverty and increasing vulnerability to tropical storms and hurricanes as a result of climate change. The development objective of the proposed activity is to assure the continued broad-based economic growth of the coastal areas of Honduras and Nicaragua by supporting both the physical safety and enabling environment for investments - in particular those focused on natural attractions, public planning for destination management and private small and micro tourism products. Additionally, the proposed activity will inform micro credit programs which support Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in responsible tourism by identifying specific training and technical assistance needs and helping to establish programs which could be linked to further projects. Finally, the activity also represents a cross sector approach to private sector development, impacting rural as well as urban areas, positively impacting the environment which will serve as key inputs to secure World Bank and International Finance Corporation (IFC) financing for the Honduran and Nicaraguan government's programs for tourism development on the Caribbean coast for economic growth and poverty reduction.
