Rural communities in Western Honduras have long been marginalized, suffering high levels of poverty and inequality. Governments have shown little interest in smallholder agriculture and as a consequence have invested little in the region. Following ten years of action to build civil society, however, communities and local authorities are now working together to claim their rights. Working progressively at different levels – community, municipality, regional, and national – Oxfam and its partners have campaigned to promote small-scale agriculture as a viable means of building livelihoods and reducing poverty. As a result, new funding is beginning to have an impact in rural areas.
