This article discusses how climate change is already having serious effects on El Salvador. Despite the country's relatively small share of global carbon dioxide output, El Salvador is experiencing the compounded effects of climate change--rising sea levels as well as shifting weather patterns that disrupt economic livelihoods, such as farming. In addition, the article discusses how the Funes administration is addressing the changes. These approaches range from implementing school curriculum on climate change to increased spending on infrastructural improvements.
