Located in Central America, Honduras borders the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean and is shaped by mountains. These characteristics create a tropical climate in the lowlands and a temperate climate in the highlands. Honduras is highly vulnerable to climate change, not only because of environmental impacts but also due to low adaptive capacities. Increasing temperatures, decreasing rainfall and an increasing sea level will affect agricultural activities through a loss of crops, salinization and damages on infrastructure and thus the livelihoods of many Hondurans. In addition, the increase of intensity and occurrence of extreme weather events, such as tropical cyclones, and climatic variabilities, such as the El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) will put particularly coastal regions at high risk.
