Project Description

El Salvador’s artisanal fisher communities face limited economic opportunities, frequent natural disasters, and persistent levels of violence that push many to leave their communities in search of a better life. The IAF supports community-led solutions to create economic opportunity and improve natural resource management. Our grantee partner, Federación de Asociaciones Cooperativas Pesqueras Artesanales de El Salvador (FACOPADES), which represents 36 fresh and saltwater fisher cooperatives, strengthens the administrative, financial, and organizational capacity of its members, so fishing communities are more resilient to disasters and have expanded economic opportunities that provide alternatives to irregular migration.

This grant is part of the IAF’s efforts to address the root causes of irregular migration in Central America.
