Financing of the Green climate fund will transform agricultural practices in the 114 municipalities of the dry corridor of El Salvador

Transform agricultural practices, building reservoirs, promote crop diversification through family and community gardens, and provide technical assistance through field schools for farmers, are part of projects that are promote through the project: scaling of climate resilience in the agroecosystems (RECLIMA).

San Salvador 25 October 2018. The mackerel climate fund approved RECLIMA, a US $127.7 million project that aims to improve resilience to climate change of agricultural systems of the 114 municipalities located in the dry corridor of El Salvador, and with which 225 000 people will benefit involved in this sector.

The decision of the Board of the Green Fund for the climate (GCF, abbreviation of Green Climate Fund) at its meeting in Manama, Bahrain, (from 17 to 20 October 2018) assumes that the GCF will donate US $35.8 million to the project. US $91.8 million remaining will come from consideration by the Government of El Salvador: US $74.3 million will be provided by the Ministry of agriculture and livestock (MAG), $ 3.7 million by the Ministry of environment and natural resources (MARN) and US $ 13.8 million by the environmental investment of El Salvador (FIÃES) Fund.

The Green climate fund was created within the framework of the United Nations Framework Convention on climate change (UNFCCC for its acronym in English), constituted as a mechanism to assist countries in developing adaptation to climate change and mitigation of their effects.

RECLIMA will involve 20, 000 people belonging to indigenous communities and 50,000 family farmers - who make up nearly 15 percent of all family farmers in the country.

The project will work with a third of the population most vulnerable to climate change in the dry corridor of El Salvador, an area that is affected by severe droughts, floods and tropical storms. About 38 percent of recipient households are headed by women.

RECLIMA was developed by an inter-agency technical team, led by the heads of the Ministry of environment and natural resources, Lina Pohl - authority who presented the project to the Green climate fund in South Korea in the month of July; the Minister of agriculture and livestock, Orestes Ortez; Deputy Foreign Minister Jaime Miranda, the representative of the United Nations Organization for food and Agriculture (FAO) in El Salvador, Alan González - in its accredited institution - and the executive director of the environmental investment fund of the Salvador (FIÃES), Jorge Oviedo.

Its production has also included consultation processes inclusive with the participation of indigenous peoples, civil society and the private sector. RECLIMA will have a Steering Committee of high level, which will report its results directly to the Office of sustainability and environmental vulnerability of El Salvador.

Transforming food systems

RECLIMA will promote a profound change in the food systems of the dry corridor from El Salvador to help eradicate hunger, poverty and addressing the challenges of climate change, contributing directly to food security for the families of the 114 municipalities in which the project will be implemented. This includes the intention of reducing or capturing more than four million tonnes of carbon over a period of five years.

The project will work with family farmers to transform their productive practices, improving their basic infrastructure and technical expertise with the aim of achieving fully sustainable food systems and more resilient. This action will be held by the MAG, through the National Centre for agricultural technology and forestry "Enrique Álvarez Córdova" (CENTA), incorporating measures of adaptation and resilience in support programmes for producers, especially by means of technical assistance, among others.

In particular, the project seeks to increase resilience in agricultural production systems that span more than 56, 000 hectares, promoting the adoption of measures of adaptation, such as the use of drought-tolerant seeds.

RECLIMA aims to improve agricultural extension systems, promoting a landscape approach to restore ecosystem services, through the recovery of 17,000 hectares of degraded ecosystems. In addition, about 4,000 families will benefit from better access to water through the capture, storage and distribution of rain water.

With its focus on the dry corridor, the project seeks to reduce one of the major causes of international migration originating in rural areas of El Salvador: climate shocks such as droughts and floods. As such, RECLIMA will be a key element in the strategy of the country's reduction of migration by need.

El Salvador is extremely vulnerable to climate change

El Salvador is one of the countries most vulnerable to climate risks in the world. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on climate change (IPCC), the increase in temperature can reduce yields of the major crops of the country by 20 percent by 2050, mainly due to drought.
In the area of the dry corridor of El Salvador, 2.2 million people live in a situation of poverty and climatic vulnerability, and 54 percent of them depends on the production of basic grains as primary means of subsistence.

FIÃES PERFORMED LECTURE ON IMPORTANCE OF ENVIRONMENTAL COMPENSATION.

In order to promote business involvement, the background of environmental investment in El Salvador (FIÃES) organized a Conference on the importance of environmental compensation for sustainable development aimed at the various companies sectors of the country, on 20 September.

Keynote talk entitled "the State of the art of environmental compensation in Latinoameria" was conducted by Vladimir Varela, consultant international cooperation organizations and researcher at the Centro Agronómico Tropical de Investigación y Enseñanza) CATIE).

As part of the issues that were addressed, Jorge Oviedo, executive director of FIÃES, spoke about the services, benefits and impacts of projects funded by environmental compensation administered by this organization.

We had also the participation of Jorge Castaneda, Manager of environmental evaluation of the Ministry of environment and natural resources of El Salvador (MARN), who explained the process of calculation of compensation for environmentally viable projects.

Successful cases of non-governmental organizations that have executed projects with environmental compensation funds were shared in the event and presented the plans and projects of environmental restoration FIÃES develops in 8 territories priority.

Environmental compensation is a tool that generates actions that seek to produce a positive effect equivalent to a negative effect on the environment. From the agreement Ministerial N ° 31 from 21 March 2014, FIÃES becomes the ideal mechanism to implement environmental compensation measures dictated by the Ministry of environment and natural resources, MARN, in assessment processes environmental.

According to Jorge Oviedo, executive director of FIÃES, thanks to an agreement with the MRNA, companies can make this procedure through FIÃES more agile and effective. In addition, achieved measures of restoration have more impact, because FIÃES already has plans and actions defined for the recovery of ecosystems, which are implemented in partnership with various non-governmental entities.

The benefits of environmental compensation through FIÃES include:
• Is convenient and efficient, which reduces time and eliminates processes companies
• Reduces costs because FIÃES identifies the project, site and implementing entity.
• FIÃES provides technical, financial and communications monitoring ecosystem restoration projects.
• Ensure transparent procedures because:
-Informs MRNA on the funds received and the investment made.
-Publishes the approved projects, its source of funding and makes accountability.
-Account with internal and external audits.
