Reported By: Jason Streubel

“The desert” brings images to my mind of sand dunes and a quest for water. However, not every desert looks like the Sahara. In reality, the desert is a harsh ecosystem where everything fights to survive. In the rain shadow of Nicaraguan volcanoes lives a community of people who were in need of new ways to thrive in this harshness. This community was smart and motivated. All they needed was some resourcing to help them thrive.

La principal fuente de calorías y proteínas de la dieta salvadoreña es el maíz, el frijol y el arroz. En tiempo de estrés agudo los salvadoreños consumen sorgo. El país produce maíz, frijol y sorgo a nivel de pequeños y grandes agricultores; el arroz se obtiene mayormente a través de las importaciones. El Mercado Central de Gerardo Barrios en San Salvador, la ciudad capital, es el principal mercado del país y también el mercado regional que puede influir en los precios de Guatemala, Honduras y Nicaragua.

Rice, black beans, maize, and cooking oil are among the most important food items for poor and middle income households in Haiti. Roots and tubers are also important, but not currently monitored. All cooking oil is imported and rice imports account for about 80 percent of national needs. Large quantities of beans and maize are also imported, but over half of the national needs are domestically produced. Rice is consumed by even the poorest households, and imported rice is generally cheaper than locally produced rice.

Highlights:

• In Central America, the El Niño phenomenon is generally associated with below-average rains and prolonged dry spells.

• The 2019 January-March dry season in the subregion was drier than usual due to the presence of El Niño, which affected production of the 2018 third season maize crop in Guatemala.

• There is a high likelihood that the El Niño phenomenon could persist in the May-July period, which coincides with the planting and development stages of the main season maize crop and continue until the end of the year.
