As part of the “Carbon Footprint Measurement of Food and Drink Products in Latin America and the Caribbean” project, funded by the UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) and implemented by SNV in partnership with Factor CO2, the project team has organised several events to present the results of the carbon footprint measurement of Honduran exports.

SNV and FACT Foundation have collaborated to create a cross-country knowledge base that will promote and support the rapid emergence of productive biogas sectors and markets worldwide.

The project "Strengthening the capacities of government and food exporters in Latin America to adapt to climate change (+Exportations/-CO2)” supported by ECLAC (Economic Commission of Latin America of the UN) and implemented by SNV has begun the process of measuring the carbon footprint in Honduras.
For the first time in Nicaragua, masons, engineers, and professors from the National Technological Institute (INATEC) and technical institutions will be trained and certified in the construction, installation, and maintenance of biogas systems (camartec type) by the National Biogas Market Development Programme (PBN) and the La Salle Technological Univesity (ULSA). The training will take place from November 4th through the 15th.
