Honduras has a long history of military rule, corruption, poverty and crime which have rendered it one of the least developed and most unstable countries in Central America. As well as suffering high rates of poverty, particularly in rural areas, the country is vastly exposed to adverse natural events and climate change, especially heavy rainfall and drought that occur regularly and disproportionately affect the poor.

The COVID-19 pandemic is significantly impacting Honduras’s economy. The country’s GDP is expected to contract by 7.1 percent in 2020 due to a sharper than expected fall in trade, investment and consumption amid the global slowdown and prolonged containment measures (World Bank, 2020).
