Honduras - Sustainable Coastal Tourism Project : social assessment (Inglês)

This Social Assessment (SOA) evaluates potential socioeconomic adversity on local populations, as a result of the Sustainable Coastal Tourism Project implementation. It identifies the beneficiaries, and stakeholders, to determine possible negative impacts on their activities, and to minimize the social constraints thereof. Ethnic representation revealed a larger percentage of mestizo population, with only a thirty percent indigenous population; however, it also revealed strong ties among indigenous populations in the protected areas, between the control of natural resources, and their cultural heritage. Further review analyzed education, and health aspects, land ownership, labor trends, and land uses. Measures to minimize social adversity include: 1) interagency coordination to identify property titles, and settle land conflicts/disputes, with the support of the National Property Registration Institute, Municipalities, non governmental organizations (NGOs) and the Ministry of Tourism; 2) continued inter-cultural process of bilingual education, with the technical, and financial support of the Ministry of Education, including teacher training provision, and enhanced parental awareness; 3) coordination with the Ministry of Health, ethnic organizations, NGOs, and municipalities, to foster HIV/AIDS prevention, by researching migration patterns, and sexual behavior (within cultural parameters); and, 4) technical training for the development, and quality control of native, or indigenous products, and crafts, to diversify, and increase income earnings capacity.
