A May WFP assessment in El Salvador determined that some 12,800 casual labour reliant households are vulnerable to food insecurity as a consequence of the coffee rust outbreak. The loss of income due to a decline in working days is reducing household food access. Income levels for vulnerable households are 30% below the cost of a basic food basket. Vulnerable households have limited access to other income sources, while food stocks from own production were expected to be exhausted by July. Coffee rust is expected to continue to have significant impacts on labour markets in El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Guatemala in 2013/2014 as coffee plantations will have to curtail or stop production to halt the spread of the coffee rust.
