The nation’s wealth is distributed very unevenly
In Honduras, income, assets and real estate are distributed very unequally. Of the nearly 10 million inhabitants, close to two thirds live below the poverty line. Poverty and unemployment are particularly high in the rural regions. The cities often have high rates of violence and criminality; there is a high degree of legal uncertainty in the country. It is difficult for young people to find work once they finish school. To curb gang violence among young people, KfW is supporting construction of youth centres and sports facilities and increasing its involvement in vocational training programmes. A further focus area of the cooperation is adaptation to climate change.
As part of the BMZ 2030 reform strategy, the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) is ending bilateral development cooperation with Honduras. Apart from the projects and measures still in progress, no further commitments are planned. Projects are being continued at a regional level.
