Improving University Research and Education in Honduras
Erik W. Thulstrup
Sida has provided support to research cooperation with Honduras during 2005-2008. The overall aim of the Swedish research cooperation with Honduras is to assist the country in its endeavour to reform the higher education (HE) and the research sector in order to create analytical and research capacity to adeqately adress national problems and achieve sustainable development. In order to do so Sida entered into partnership with Universidad Nacianal Autónoma de Honduras (UNAH) being the largest university with the mission to direct HE and research in the country. The evaluation is reviewing two years of cooperatioon raising questions of setbacks as well as the progress of the project, ending with a number of recommendations.
