In 2016, the defense of women’s rights developed within a context of insecurity and high levels of violence against the groups, organizations, networks, and human rights’ activists we support. The most shocking event worldwide being the assassination of Berta Cáceres, leader of the Lenca indigenous people of Honduras and winner of the 2015 Goldman Environmental Prize. Despite this complex and dif cult scenario, every day we reaf rm the courage, creativity, and commitment of thousands of women in Central America that come together to confront their contexts, continuing to envisage and work for a better world. As FCAM, we have contributed to their cause, and, with this report, we present the annual account of our activities and achievements in 2016.
