Tegucigalpa, May 6, 2008. – An interinstitutional cooperation agreement was singed today between the National Institute of Statistics (INE for its Spanish acronym) and the Millennium Challenge Account-Honduras in order to develop  surveys on household, farmers, and prices and products .

The Agreement states that INE will apply a survey to heads of households  (men and women) at a national level, and also to leader farmers and beneficiaries trained by MCA-Honduras Farmers Training and Development Activity (FTDA), using the same instrument applied for the household survey and the agricultural module of the National Survey on Living Conditions (Encuesta Nacional de Condiciones de Vida -ENCOVI).

In addition, INE will collect information on prices and products in the markets of the communities where the households and farmers are located.

On the other hand, MCA-Honduras will design and provide to INE the sample of the communities to be used in the household survey, as well as those of the leader farmers, beneficiaries, and the list of leaders.


The Agreement was signed by Mr. Antonio Rene Soler, Deputy Director of INE, and Mr. Martin Ochoa, General Director of the Millennium Challenge Account-Honduras, and will be valid from this date until the end of the Compact in 2010.




The Government of Honduras and the Government of the United States of America, acting through the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC),  signed the “Millennium Challenge Compact” aimed at implementing the Millennium Challenge Account-Honduras Program, which is addressed to contribute to the country´s development and to support poverty reduction through economic growth.
