One of our friends in Nicaragua has won a prestigious international award. Centro Humboldt (see here for more details) was one of 25 organisations to win the United Nations Development Programme Equator Award. The UNDP gives out the awards every two years.
Centro Humboldt received the award for its work in helping communities cope with drought (see here). Over the years Centro Humboldt has met with the Campaign’s delegation members, to discuss climate change, Nicaragua’s forestry, the inter-oceanic canal, food security and land rights.
The Campaign hopes to meet with Centro Humboldt again this February, to exchange information about the environmental challenges facing Nicaragua and Wales.
