In Honduras, insufficient knowledge about water resource management has for many years led to problems with supplying the population with water, despite plentiful water resources. At the initiative of the United Nations Development Programme's country office in Honduras, the Honduran Water Platform (HWP) was established in 2003 with the aim of implementing more suitable management of the country's water resources.
In 2004, GEUS, in collaboration with Kvistgaard Consult, carried out a project that supported the HWP in its preparation of a water resource strategy and action plan. The work included capacity enhancement in the HWP, so that they are now better qualified to support Honduran efforts to create a more efficient framework for protection, rational exploitation, and management of the country's water resources. The project is being supported financially by Nordic funds from the United Nations Development Programme.
