    Desde 1986, en consonancia con políticas gubernamentales, en Honduras se ha promovido el desarrollo del cultivo de la palma de aceite con el objetivo de aportar al crecimiento económico regional, En el departamento de Yoro, el cultivo de la palma de aceite es de 20 000 hectáreas aproximadamente, 70% de las cuales pertenece a pequeños agricultores agrupados en cooperativas o empresas asociativas. En un área geográfica tan extensa, este cultivo está expuesto a plagas y enfermedades, y su sostenibilidad depende del adecuado manejo que se haga de ellas. Por este motivo, SNV y HONDUPALMA, con el apoyo de la Agencia Española de Cooperación Internacional para el Desarrollo (AECID), impulsaron un programa de Mejores Prácticas Agrícolas en el cultivo de palma de aceite.

    This study assesses the potential and constraints faced by biofuels in Nicaragua, generating a critical base of information that facilitates and supports the decision making around a national policy, implementation of a Plan of Action, the appropriate Law and Standards to promote investment and boost productivity and development of biofuels, within the framework of food security, environmental sustainability and within an Inclusive Business model to facilitate capacity building in rural communities that may be linked to biofuel production.

    This has been an effort by the Government of National Reconciliation and Unity of the Republic of Nicaragua, through the Ministry of Energy and Mines (MEM) and SNV Netherlands Development Organization (SNV). The analysis of the regulatory framework focuses on analyzing the existing opportunities and constraints the development of biofuel investments. It explicitly promotes energy production from renewable sources. Regarding the regulatory framework, but no major obstacles for developing the studied agro-energy, is still at an early stage. However, it highlights the need to develop legal institutions in the sector.

    This document presents a feasibility study conducted by SNV of the introduction of a domestic biogas programme in Nicaragua. The study concludes that the introduction of a domestic biogas programme in Nicaragua is feasible taken some factors into account. Those factors are described in the report.

    The study recommends that the programme should be presented to actors, institutions and local NGO’s that could be interested in playing an important role in the implementation of the project. Further, it recommends that the mechanism of implementation and institutionalisation of a potential biogas programme should be defined. Also a proper operational plan should be formulated with the potential strategic partners of the programme. Lastly, it is important to define potential donors to co-finance the programme.

    The report contains 9 chapters. After the introduction chapter 2 and 3 present the history and history of biogás of the country. Chapter 4 presents the methodology and the objectives. Chapter 5 looks at the market potential, while chapter 6 elaborates on the technical, socoal, environmental, economic and financial feasibility. Chapter 7 presents the justification and chapter 8 identifies the areas to start with and presents a suggested programme. Lastly, chapter 9 presents the conclusions and recommendations.

    A pesar de los avances del sector hortofrutícola a nivel regional en la modernización y eficiencia de las cadenas de valor y en la implementación de modelos de integración y tratados de libre comercio, se sigue generando exclusión y pobreza. Miles de pequeños productores rurales no están articulados a las cadenas, no cuentan con acceso a mercados rentables, no tienen tecnología, tierra ni financiamiento. ¿Las Políticas Públicas Efectivas pueden ser parte de la solución?
    Nadie ignora el rol que juegan las Políticas Públicas en el desarrollo de la competitividad de un sector ¿Pero cuáles son realmente los instrumentos vigentes y nuevos con los cuales cuentan los países de Centroamérica para facilitar el crecimiento económico y social de la actividad hortofrutícola? ¿Cuáles son las instituciones claves que la rigen? ¿Cómo estos instrumentos impactan favorablemente la agricultura centroamericana? ¿Qué falta para consolidar un entorno favorable adecuado en el sector?

    Son algunas de las preguntas que el estudio pretende responder para ayudar a instituciones gubernamentales y privadas en la generación o consolidación de proyectos e instrumentos de apoyo al sector hortofrutícola en Centroamérica.
