Restoring degraded ecosystems through adaptive agroecosystem management.

Located in the dry corridor of Central America, El Salvador is one of the most vulnerable countries to climate risks in the world. At present, it is already facing water stress, with the per capita availability of freshwater well below the critical threshold of 1,700 m3/cap/yr. Projected increases in the variability of rainfall, temperature, and occurrence of extreme weather events threaten the food and water security of farming communities living on heavily deforested and degraded hilly lands.

This project seeks to restore and reforest degraded ecosystems in order to protect water sources and stimulate aquifer recharge. By improving access to water and building local capacity to manage natural resources sustainably, small-scale farmers will be more resilient to the impacts of climate change.

The project has an estimated lifespan of 5 years.
