El Salvador ranks second in sustainability

Our country is in second place with the highest sustainable development in the region, as reported yesterday by the President of the Republic, Nayib Bukele, who took up the sustainability index in Central America of the Cambridge University Press, published by the magazine “Forbes Central America.”

According to the report, it is only surpassed by Costa Rica, which closes this year in position 47 with a score of 73.8, while El Salvador ranks 79 with a score of 69.6.

The Salvadoran nation is recognized for its progress in combating poverty, taking action against climate change, and promoting responsible production and consumption as part of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It leads Panama (which is in position 105), Nicaragua (92), Honduras (112), and Guatemala (117).

The report acknowledges that the SDGs have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and the military operation that Russia is carrying out in Ukraine.

“In the midst of this urgency, technology is emerging as an enabler of change that makes the use of natural resources more efficient, the management of human talent more effective, and even the development of communities,” says “Forbes Central America.”
