- In Amapala, households dedicated to fishing could face a more complicated period due to an increasing pressure on resources in the Gulf and the tension on the jurisdiction of the water control.
- Contributing factors related to food safety are maintained at favourable levels or normal: no adverse weather events, grain prices below the historical average and employment opportunities.
