EcoLogic recently became one of the Rockefeller Foundation’s top 100 Next Century Innovators for our agroforestry program being presented in this application. Our sustainable agroforestry work was also recently featured in a publication entitled, “Impact Innovations: Lessons from Small-scale Agriculture in Latin America and the Caribbean,” put out by the International Institution for Cooperation in Agriculture (IICA), the International Development Bank (IDB) and El Fondo Regional de Tecnología Agropecuaria (FONTAGRO).

In June 2012, at the Rio +20 Conference in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, our Honduran partner organization, AJAASSPIB, was honored as one of 25 recipients of the UN Equator Prize. This earned them prestigious recognition out of 800 nominees from 113 countries, “as an outstanding local initiative that works to recognize and advance local sustainable development solutions for people, nature and resilient communities.” EcoLogic nominated AJAASSPIB for this award.
Additionally, EcoLogic was named Runner-Up in June 2011 for the Swiss Re ReSource Award for Sustainable Watershed Management, an internationally recognized prize for leadership in community‐based watershed management. This award honored our work in northern Honduras. Finally, EcoLogic was awarded the 2007 Energy Globe National Award for Honduras in recognition of its launching of Pico Bonito Forests LLC.
