Although the airline lost his luggage en route to Copenhagen, Víctor Saravia, head of the San Marcos Ocotepeque Ecological Association which works in western Honduras, is still enthusiastic about the prospect of sharing experiences in the Danish capital.

 

“We want to share at Copenhagen, because we believe we have a valuable and interesting process, well worth making known to other Latin American countries,” Saravia told TerraViva in the midst of the hustle and bustle at Klimaforum.

The Ecological Association promotes sustainable management of protected areas and river microbasins, and develops projects on food security, basic sanitation, alternative energies and political empowerment.

One of its main projects is the protection of cloud forests, by means of multi-sector alliances, to ensure water supply in the area.

“Water is the leitmotiv, the catalyst of the social participation process, and the focus where the municipal governments, the communities and their water management boards, and international cooperation agencies all meet,” Saravia told TerraViva.
