1. Brief description of the emergency and impact
A drought associated with "El Niño" phenomenon has caused severe impacts in Central America, where it has damaged a large part of the corn and bean crops.
In El Salvador, the government has declared a national state of emergency. Up to 30% of the annual corn harvest has been lost and 90% of the annual bean crop was lost. An estimated 100,000 families have been affected and 25,000 face critical conditions of food insecurity (according to WFP calculations).
