U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Agencies in Rome Cindy McCain traveled to Guatemala and Honduras, July 23-30, to visit the ongoing U.S.-funded U.N. food and agriculture projects and meet with government officials, U.N. agencies on the ground, and program beneficiaries. These projects showcase how the U.S. government, the U.N. Food and Agriculture Agencies, and the governments of Guatemala and Honduras collaborate to reduce hunger and food insecurity and advance humanitarian relief, livelihood protection, and agriculture-led economic growth. In Honduras, for example, McCain (second from right) saw how irrigation systems are key for rural communities coping with climate change.
