The USAID Upper Lempa Watershed Project (the “Project”) works with institutions, municipalities, and civil society to address degraded water quantity, quality, and reliability in the Upper Lempa River watershed shared between El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. Through this project, Winrock leverages expertise from sub-awardees to provide research for science-based mitigation to water challenges and policy development. Through close coordination with international partners and local stakeholders, the Project will result in improved climate resiliency and governance over natural resources in the watershed by improving capacity for monitoring water resources and using data for evidenced based decision making; demonstrating USAID’s Water Security Improvement process to local partners and its uses at municipal level; and assessing water resource management financing landscape to help stakeholders access resources.
