The Bank’s strategy with Honduras for 2019-2022 aims to promote higher and more inclusive growth through coordinated actions that accelerate the accumulation of human capital, improve infrastructure and access to finance, and increase resilience to climate change. To this end, the Bank provides support in the following strategic pillars: strengthening fiscal institutions and efficiency of public spending, accumulation of human capital, and expansion of productive opportunities. To respond more effectively to existing gaps in the provision of social and productive services, the implementation prioritizes targeting and coordination of interventions in sectors such as education, health, and transport, in areas with high levels of poverty.
