“El Salvador is projected to lose 10-28% of its coastline before the end of the century. How will all those people survive, and where will they go?”

El Salvador har et stort internt problem et ekstremt stigende antal af egne statsborger der er blevet klimaflygtninge, Venezuela er en flygtninge skabende katestrofe, hvor ca. fem millioner er flygtet, det sætter El Salvador i en meget farlig situation.

“In rural villages across El Salvador, like Serrano’s, more than 600,000 people have no access to drinking water, and hundreds of thousands more experience limited or intermittent access.

Although Central America is rich in water resources, El Salvador’s small land area relative to its population size puts its thinning annual water supply per capita dangerously close to falling short of demand. Decades of failure to adequately regulate water use in the country have also opened the door to overexploitation and pollution, while fragmented water management has left services lacking.

The result is a multilayered crisis of water scarcity, contamination, and unequal access that affects a quarter of the country’s population of 6.4 million.

As climate change threatens to tip what is by far the most water-stressed nation in Central America deeper into crisis, some say the outcome of the country’s polarizing water management debate could be the lynchpin in the very viability of El Salvador’s future.
