1. General Background

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is the agency of the United Nations System with the mandate to provide international protection and seek durable solutions that respond to the needs of the refugee population, asylum seekers, internally displaced people and other people UNHCR care for.

El Salvador has a population of 6.3 million people, with at least 20% of El Salvador’s population living abroad. The flow of remittances by Salvadorans represents an important revenue for the country. According to the 2022 Multipurpose Household Survey, 26.6% of the population in El Salvador live below the poverty line, out of which 8.6% are extremely poor. The rise in food prices impact social stability, exacerbating inequalities and vulnerabilities to shocks. Earthquakes, hurricanes, and tropical storms hit hard in the past.
Like other countries in the region, El Salvador was historically affected by violence and displacement within the country and abroad. However, the situation in progressively changing generating opportunities to advance solutions to internal displacement. Changes in public security present opportunities for finding medium- and long-term solutions in communities historically affected by gang violence and territorial control.
El Salvador is committed to identifying and addressing protection and solutions for refugees, internally displaced people, returnees with protection needs, and stateless individuals. El Salvador is party to the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and its 1967 Protocol, and to the 1954 Convention Relating to the Status of Stateless Persons. In 2020, El Salvador approved the Special Law for the Care and Integral Protection of Victims of Violence in Conditions of Forced Internal Displacement.
Since July 2019, El Salvador is actively engaged in the Comprehensive Regional Protection and Solutions Framework (MIRPS in Spanish), a regional application of the Global Compact on Refugees. Growing mixed population flows across the countries in the north of Central America is a priority in the regional agenda. The increasingly complex human mobility context demands additional efforts for coordinating protection-oriented responses.
UNHCR’s 2023-2026 Strategy in El Salvador builds upon continuous assessments of existing needs and progress to protect, assist, and find solutions for internally displaced and at risk of displacement persons, refugees, asylum- seekers, and returnees with protection needs.
UNHCR is active in the implementation, coordination, and monitoring of the 2022-2026 United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF), which prioritizes responses to the needs of internally displaced people and refugees. UNHCR is an active member of the Humanitarian Country Team. UNHCR leads the Protection Sector and co-leads the CCCM and Shelter sectors.
