In news on Honduras, a handful of international funders say they will stop financing the Agua Zarca hydroelectric dam, which has faced years of resistance, including from murdered environmental activist Berta Cáceres, who was fighting the project when she was assassinated in 2016. The Guardian reports Dutch bank FMO and Finnish finance company Finnfund have announced they’ll withdraw from the project entirely. The dam’s largest financer, the Central American Bank of Economic Integration, says it has already stopped funding the project.
