Edgardo Ayala has the story on how Communities Organise to Confront Climate Change in El Salvador.
Voices on the Border has another story on the Lower Lempa River Basin with Royal Decameron Announces Plans to Build Resort in the Lower Lempa.
Finally, Tim draws attention to a recent study, Totillas on the Roaster, from Catholic Relief Services.
And here's one more from Julio Rank Wright writing at the Americas Quarterly on Salvadoran politics.
The next presidential election doesn’t take place until early 2014; however, both major parties have already chosen their candidates. FMLN has, for now, decided on Salvador Sánchez Cerén, the current vice president and last historical figure of the 1980s. ARENA officially proclaimed San Salvador Mayor Norman Quijano as its candidate. For now it seems unclear whether or not there will be a third candidate. Speculation lingers that former President Antonio Saca (2004-2009) will run again.
As the field of candidates becomes rather clear this far in advance, the expectation of moderation in political discourse and policy proposals should grow.I suspect that Quijano and Sánchez Cerén will portray themselves as moderates of the center-left and the center-right. Quijano can leave it up to the media at LPG, EDH, and the various television stations to warn of victory by the communists.
Sánchez Cerén is probably in a more difficult situation. He is going to have to run a campaign that simultaneously criticizes and praises the work of the Funes administration. It'll be a little to the left of Funes but probably not that much more.
