Challenges

Like other countries in the region, Honduras’ economy is based on natural resources. The agricultural sector is to a large extent the engine behind the country’s recent economic growth. Agriculture is Honduras’ third largest sector and contributes to 13.5% of GDP and employs 37% of the workforce.

A number of obstacles remain to fully harness the agricultural potential in Honduras. These include lack of investments and finances, limited access to technical assistance and capacity development.
