Mesoamerican Reef Catchments

In the Mesoamerican Reef, the concept, methodology and approach of the Water Fund in Guatemala can be replicated around the world. Applying a general concept, such as a Payment for Ecosystem Services mechanism, to improve local water and river basin management in one place has proven to be an effective tool to achieve large-scale impact. The partners are looking to replicate this model in Honduras, and recognize its potential elsewhere, taking into account locally relevant conditions, such as country, river basin, partners and stakeholders.
