September will see bids requested for feasibility studies and final designs for CABEI climate resilience projects.

The Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) will launch the international public bidding process for feasibility studies and final designs of six prioritized land dams in Honduras in September.

The dams are intended to serve as vital new climate change resilient infrastructure to guarantee the availability and sustainable management of water. They will be built in:

  • Quebrada La Relumbrosa – La Ceiba, Atlántida;
  • Río Jalán – Juticalpa, Olancho;
  • Río Choluteca, Hernando López (Río Hondo) – Tegucigalpa, Francisco Morazán;
  • Río Leotuna – Maraita, Francisco Morazán;
  • Río Guangololo – La Paz, La Paz;
  • Río Texiguat – Texiguat, El Paraíso.

CABEI executive president, Dr. Dante Mossi, said: “For CABEI, implementing these projects represents a contribution to and strengthening of Honduras’ resilience to natural phenomena, but more importantly, it will contribute to improving the quality of life of the families in the beneficiary areas”.

This initiative is part of CABEI’s 2020-2024 Institutional Strategy, which includes human development and environmental pillars that aim to contribute to the quality of life of Central American families and the preservation of the environment.
