In the Mosquitia region (Honduras), the indigenous population has largely preserved its traditional way of life and preserved species-rich ecosystems that are part of the Central American biocorridor. The development of the region is in a critical state due to the failure of state investments in electricity and sanitation, transport connections, education and health care in the past The region, which is located in the east in the border area with Nicaragua, is characterised by its geographical inaccessibility (no road connection to the rest of Honduras) and an inadequate infrastructure. The transport of people and goods takes place largely by water (rivers, sea) and involves high costs. Despite the wealth of natural resources, poverty affects well over half of the rural families living in subsistence farming due to a lack of market access and increasing crop failures caused by climate change.despite the government's willingness to reform to respect indigenous rights, legislation on land and resource use does not take sufficient account of the special context of indigenous lifestyles. Indigenous territorial councils are not prepared for their new role as administrators of communal land titles and managers of the territory, and rural families lack the knowledge and means to secure their livelihoods under the effects of climate change. As a result, the indigenous population is not empowered to integrate sustainable management of their natural resources based on indigenous traditions into state regulations on use and to secure their food supply by adapting their production methods to climate change.
