Through the Land Administration Projects, in which TCIC has been involved in Central America, considerable efforts were made to strengthen the land tenure rights of a number of indigenous territories and communities in Honduras, Nicaragua and Guatemala. Recently, in Honduras, the PATH II, financed by WB with a strong technical support of TCIC, completed the delimitation and registration of 11 new inter communal titles in the Mosquito region, covering more than 1 million hectares and 17,500 indigenous families. In April, the president of Honduras delivered officially these titles in a public ceremony. In Guatemala, through the PAT II (also financed with WB with technical support of TCIC), efforts were made to recognize communal lands from the cadastre point of view. Five indigenous and small farmers communities have benefitted from this Project and this achievement has encouraged TCI, in coordination with FAO-Gt and OPC, to develop a new initiative to strengthen local governance and territorial management in communal lands, and prepare a new investment project in this country. First initiatives have consisted of a learning material package including 5 video and factsheets based on the M&E toolkit for land Administration Projects, which has just been released (Introduction; Communal Lands; Local Governance; Benefits of good governance; Conclusion), as well as the organization of a this event.
