Blue Harvest

The goal of the initiative is to restore and manage water resources while increasing farmer income in the coffeelands of El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua. The program contributes to this goal in three ways:

  • Improving sustainable coffee agroforestry production in critical watersheds promoting water-smart agriculture

  • Strengthening local water governance

  • Improving farmer access to high-value markets


Blue Harvest includes three programmatic areas:

  • Technical support

  • Funds for water resource management work in the field

  • Learning and advocacy


Implementing partners
