Dry Corridor

The Dry Corridor is a strip of territory that streteches across Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. More than 10 million people live there, many of whom are engaged in agricultural activities, especially the small production of basic grains.

It is an area highly vulnerable to extreme climatic events, where long periods of drought are followed by intense rains that strongly affect the livelihoods and food security of local populations. 80% of small producers live in poverty, and many people are forced to migrate.
