Supporting local communities in El Salvador and beyond

ECOPA's multi-year programmatic work serves the identified needs of its grassroots partner organizations in the rural Lower Lempa River region of the Department of Usulután and the Bay of Jiquilisco in El Salvador: a Ramsar Wetlands Site of International Importance and a UNESCO-designated Protected Biosphere Reserve. ECOPA's vision is to expand this work in El Salvador, with plans to replicate and adapt it in countries like Argentina, Colombia and México.
