Regional Protracted Relief and Recovery Operation in Central America

Vulnerability in Central America is the result of structural economic causes, civil wars and natural disasters. In the past three years, the region has not been struck by crises on the scale of those before 2003. However, chronic vulnerability has had a cumulative effect that has eroded the livelihoods of many households, especially those in which families have more than five children and households that lack access to productive resources such as land or long-term employment.
