Nicaragua

The effects of climate change and the failure of crops has put hundreds of families in danger of becoming malnourished.

Country Overview 

In recent years, there have been constant changes in weather patterns in Central America. The reduction and concentration of rainfall days and volumes have led to recurrent periods of drought and devastating effects on food and nutrition security. Access to water has also been severly affected. 

In the Dry Corridor region, which includes Nicaragua and Honduras, drought events, also called 'silent disasters', have been damaging and eroding the fragile livelihoods of families that are especially exposed.

What We're Doing

Action Against Hunger has been working in the country since 1996, setting up programmes focused on food security, nutrition, health, water, and other basic services. However, the main challenge our teams face is meeting the needs of the population given the limitations to humanitarian access that exist in the country.
