Implementation of rainwater harvesting systems with a geomembrane bag in Honduras and El Salvador

GWP Central America presents a new case study on the implementation of Rainwater Harvesting Systems with a geomembrane bag in rural areas of Honduras and El Salvador. Women are the main characters of the story. Central America is one of the regions most affected by climate change. Its effects are reflected in more intense, recurrent and prolonged hydrometeorological phenomena that are manifested in two extremes of the same spectrum: floods and drought. In turn, multiple factors such as rapid environmental degradation, lack of territorial ordering, institutional weaknesses or lack of adequate infrastructure make it one of the most vulnerable regions in the world in the face of extreme climate, with the Central American Dry Corridor being one of the most the most affected areas.
