Some Observations on Conservation of Natural Resources in El Salvador
Abstract:San Salvador, a country no larger in area than the State of Maryland, has critical problems in land-use adjustment. The dense population makes heavy demands on all soil suitable for cultivation in the healthful portion of the country. Erosion, droughts, and general depletion of agricultural and forest resources pose acute economic and social problems. A program of conservation was worked out and placed in operation through the cooperative efforts of the Salvadoran government and experts working for the U.S. State Department.
