World Bank helps protect Hondurans from violence

Friday, December 14, 2012


Honduras took a step forward in protecting close to 1.5 million people affected by crime, violence and natural disasters, thanks to two new credits totaling $45 million approved today by the World Bank Board of Executive Directors.

Through the "Disaster Risk Management Project" ($30 million) close to 850,000 people across the country will benefit from increased natural disaster mitigation and preparedness plans.

Almost 600,000 people in the northern municipalities of Choloma, La Ceiba and El Progreso will also benefit from violence prevention initiatives, through a $15 million credit for the "Safer Municipalities Project."
