Advancing Women as Environmental Leaders in Nicaragua

Commitment by

Paso Pacífico

In 2009, Paso Pacifico and its partners committed to strengthening Nicaraguan women as environmental leaders by supporting their efforts to reduce the impact of climate change on their families and community. Through this commitment, Paso Pacifico helps local women launch small enterprises in sustainable tourism, forestry, and agriculture and spearheads efforts to protect endangered sea turtles through women-run sea turtle hatcheries. Paso Pacifico will also institute a hands-on environmental education program and out-door education program for girls.
