The Honduran Centre for the Protection of Community Development (El Centro Hondureño para la Promoción de Desarrollo Comunitario)

The Honduran Centre for the Protection of Community Development was founded in 1991. Its primary focus is the right to food linked to the defence of economic, social and cultural rights. They provide legal and technical assistance to indigenous and small- scale farmer organisations that are defending their territory against extractive industries and hydroelectric schemes.

The Centre is also providing legal representation to those who have been criminalised in their defence of their land and territory.  Currently the Centre is present in 10 out of 18 departments of Honduras and it coordinates the national coalition of environmental networks (Coalición nacional de Redes Ambientales CONROA).

PBI Honduras has been accompanying the Centre since May 2014.
