OVERVIEW

El Salvador has had a long history of war, inequity, and injustice. Civil unrest, crime, gang violence, and poverty are factors that contribute to widespread migration of those fleeing the country. While agricultural production represents 10-11% of the GDP, it only employs 20% of the labour force.
