In order to achieve resilient livelihoods for people, as well as for companies and for the general economy of Honduras, Swisscontact aligns its actions with the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). These include eradicating poverty, gender equality, decent work and economic growth, responsible consumption and production, and forming partnerships to achieve these goals. To this aim, Swisscontact executes projects sponsored by private and public donors (SDC, European Union, Government of Honduras, among others). 

To achieve the greatest possible impact from the interventions, the projects incorporate scalability (use in other regions), focus on associations (organisations, field schools for agriculture, etc.) and the use of result-based methodologies (logical framework, results chain, monitoring systems, etc.). The experience in Honduras has shown that the path to resilience is linked to the creation of productive jobs and the generation of income.
