Vulnerability and Resilience to Climate Change in Western Honduras: Annexes I-VI
USAID’s African and Latin American Resilience to Climate Change (ARCC) project compiled these annexes as part of a study on western Honduras’s vulnerability to climate change.
The first annex is comprised of facilitation guides that were used to conduct the study, with specific questions that were asked of focus groups and forms to use for analysis. Examples with targeted farmers included asking how many have worked in the sector for 20 years and what climate and non-climate events have occurred in that timeframe. The guide also probes how farmers are preparing their field and managing their crops. The guide also includes questions used to explore farmers’ vulnerability and adaptive capacity. A separate one is for focus groups with institutions.
Other annexes include: climate analysis; protected areas profiles; phenological analyses; value chain analysis and a list of contacts from the scoping trip and focus groups.
The climate analysis includes climagrams plotted to approximate geographic locations and showing annual cycles for temperature and precipitation. These are contrasted against a composite satellite image and other climate modeling.
Seventeen protected areas are profiled in that annex. The phenological analyses cover coffee, potatoes, lettuce, maize and beans.
