El Salvador, Usulután, 29 May 2018  Marina Claros’ family is preparing a healthy lunch, with plenty of vegetables and no oil. Her sister-in-law, Armida, is making corn and carrot tortillas while her uncle Maximiliano busies himself with a pitcher of peppermint lemonade.  Set out on the kitchen table is Marina’s favorite salad — beans, chopped tomatoes, chili peppers, onions, greens and lemon — which she and her family just finished making together. “It’s easy, quick to make, and nutritious,” says Marina.  She learned the recipe at a community cooking class in Masala, in the Salvadoran department of Morazán.  A nutritionist taught her, Maximiliano and other participants to avoid using stock to add flavour to their dishes and to start using leafy greens, which they had not thought about despite having them readily at hand. “We value them now because green leaves contain quite a lot of iron that, for instance, can help combat anaemia in children,” says Marina.  A mother of four, Marina grows chipilín — a local leafy green — blackberries, cilantro, maidenhair and other herbs in her family garden. She also grows a variety of fruits and vegetables that help diversify her diet, save money at the market and generate some extra income when she can sell the surplus. To do this in such a drought-stricken area, she has an irrigation system in her yard that also harvests water.  “They have suffered from continuous droughts here,” remarks Luis Bran, coordinator for the World Food Programme (WFP)’s project for resilience against climate change in El Salvador “and families are making a big effort.”  In the Photo: one of the fruits that Marina cultivates in her family garden.

El Salvador, Usulután, 29 May 2018  WFP supports smallholder farmers and agricultural laborers, with a special focus on women, in creating or rehabilitating climate-resilient assets to improve their productivity, income, livelihoods, nutrition and food security.  Esperanza Vigil began to notice changes in the climate four years ago, the last time her community had a normal winter. Since then, the blooming times of the trees have changed and storms have become more common in the municipality of Joateca, in the department of Morazán, El Salvador. “You can tell the weather has lost its usual balance,” she says: “It’s like it is all distorted.”  In the Photo: Like many members of her community, Esperanza Vigil has learned to take care of the environment.

El Salvador, Usulután, 24 May 2018  WFP supports smallholder farmers and agricultural laborers, with a special focus on women, in creating or rehabilitating climate-resilient assets to improve their productivity, income, livelihoods, nutrition and food security.  “Have you noticed how sweaty I am?” says Marielos Segovia, as she traces the lines of her cheeks with her fingers. “In the past, the climate didn’t feel like this in the area. It was cooler.”  Marielos, a 24-year-old from the eastern part of the department of Usulután, explains that “the younger ones, especially the children, are noticing the changes and they say that it’s too hot.”  The municipality of San Francisco Javier, where Marielos lives, has high poverty rates and the people’s main concern is putting food on the table. They grow maize and beans, and use chemical fertilizers. As head of the Environment Unit at the municipality, Marielos’ job is to raise awareness among the community. “This is a job that we all have to do together, because we are already experiencing the changes in the climate.”  In the Photo: Marielos Segovia is very committed to the environment and her community in Usulután.

El Salvador, San Salvador, Barrio San Jacinto, Comunidad Cruz Roja, 07 April 2017  Over the past decade El Salvador has made significant progress in reducing food insecurity and malnutrition. However, extremely seriously levels of violence, inequality and poverty continue to pose major challenges to development. Fueled by poor access to nutritious food, scarcely diversified diets – poor consumption of vegetables and fruits – and a lack of nutritional awareness, three major problems overlap in El Salvador: stunting in children under five years of age, anaemia in women of reproductive age, and obesity and overweight in adults (also seen increasingly in children).   With young people representing over half of El Salvador’s population, youth plays an important role in shaping the future of their communities and society. In 2016, in collaboration with the Municipality of San Salvador, WFP launched ConectArte – an initiative aiming to transform the lives of urban youth through developing art. The project has united dozens of youth between 18 and 29 years of age from at-risk households with local and international street artists. The youth attend workshops on nutrition and hygiene, life skills and artistic techniques every week while painting murals around the city to revitalize public spaces.  The goal is to provide these young people with the skills and knowledge to improve their quality of life and to positively transform their futures through art. The project strives to strengthen their connection to the community, reinforce their self-esteem, encourage dialogue and highlight the role that access to healthy food can play in creating opportunities for change. As an incentive, WFP provides a monthly electronic food voucher that can be redeemed at local markets for food as remuneration for their time and effort. In this way, WFP can help alleviate poverty and the food insecurity of their families while positively contributing to their communities.

El Salvador, San Salvador, Barrio San Jacinto, Comunidad Cruz Roja, 07 April 2017  Over the past decade El Salvador has made significant progress in reducing food insecurity and malnutrition. However, extremely seriously levels of violence, inequality and poverty continue to pose major challenges to development. Fueled by poor access to nutritious food, scarcely diversified diets – poor consumption of vegetables and fruits – and a lack of nutritional awareness, three major problems overlap in El Salvador: stunting in children under five years of age, anaemia in women of reproductive age, and obesity and overweight in adults (also seen increasingly in children).   With young people representing over half of El Salvador’s population, youth plays an important role in shaping the future of their communities and society. In 2016, in collaboration with the Municipality of San Salvador, WFP launched ConectArte – an initiative aiming to transform the lives of urban youth through developing art. The project has united dozens of youth between 18 and 29 years of age from at-risk households with local and international street artists. The youth attend workshops on nutrition and hygiene, life skills and artistic techniques every week while painting murals around the city to revitalize public spaces.  The goal is to provide these young people with the skills and knowledge to improve their quality of life and to positively transform their futures through art. The project strives to strengthen their connection to the community, reinforce their self-esteem, encourage dialogue and highlight the role that access to healthy food can play in creating opportunities for change. As an incentive, WFP provides a monthly electronic food voucher that can be redeemed at local markets for food as remuneration for their time and effort. In this way, WFP can help alleviate poverty and the food insecurity of their families while positively contributing to their communities.
