Jícaro Galán, Nacaome, Valle. By creating an “oasis effect” in the area, works for the water harvests systems for irrigation purposes in the Valle Department are contributing to improve climate conditions in southern Honduras.
The Water Harvest systems consist in infrastructure works needed to capture run-off waters in order to store them for further distribution to the farming parcels.
During the visit, the Commission documented the absence of any environmental impact caused by the works, and on the contrary, it was possible to note the climatic improvement recorded in the area resulting from “oasis effect that is regenerating the ecosystem”, as it was expressed by Carmen Padilla, Environmental Engineer of MCA-Honduras Environmental Direction.
The Mission of Supervision of MCA-Honduras included Vilma Rivera and Juan Miguel Pérez, who also met with Mario Noboa, the project´s manager, and other members of the teamwork.
The field trip included revision of the progress obtained in the works and the mitigation measures implemented in the communities of Moraycito, Terrero Blanco, Santa Cruz I and II, Junquillo I and II, Trapiche and Rió Apasapo, all participating as Project beneficiaries.
