HONDURAS

SA/LW from Honduran government stockpiles have found their way into the illicit weapons trade. Improving the security and safety of existing stockpiles and destroying excess, at-risk stockpiles will strengthen regional stability, support existing democratic institutions, and reduce the hazards posed by such weapons.

From 2006 to 2017, the United States invested more than $1.1 million to support CWD in Honduras, including SA/LW threat reduction.

In 2017, the Department of State supported the following implementing partner (using FY16 funds):

  • HALO, with the Government of Honduras, worked to destroy excess munitions. HALO also supported some of the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement’s work to assist with physical improvements to vulnerable depots.
