El Salvador is a country with abundant rainfall; however, the portion of irrigated land in times of drought is less than 5% of total agricultural land due to water scarcity. The lack of irrigated land has led to the import of 80% of basic consumer products, such as rice, causing poverty in rural areas. Agricultural practices in the dry season are necessary to improve economic competitiveness in rural areas, for this reason the modernization and expansion of infrastructure and irrigation area is a priority within the Strategic Institutional Plan of the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock of El Salvador, which is aligned with the Five-Year Development Plan 2014-2019.

According to the 2012 FAO-ACH-ECHO study, the Central American dry corridor covers a large part of the Salvadoran territory, and severely affects the departments of San Miguel and Morazán.
Among the causes of this condition, we can mention deforestation, soil compaction and degradation, pollution and sedimentation of water sources, consequently, soil degradation is manifested in a lower water infiltration capacity, loss of fertility and particle drag (erosion); therefore, the conditions for the reduction of crop yields are greater and make them more susceptible to the impact of climate variability
The project seeks the implementation of actions for the recovery of four sub-basins and the adaptation of methods and technologies that help to develop activities that benefit farmers to minimize the effects of climate change in nine municipalities in the eastern part of the country, specifically in the areas affected by the drought of 2014. This intervention is aimed at the implementation of soil conservation practices and works, reforestation of aquifer recharge areas, and the construction of small water collection works for irrigation purposes. The Project site is located in 9 Municipalities of the Departments of Morazán (San Francisco Gotera, San Carlos, Cacaopera, Delicias de Concepción, Chilanga, El Divisadero and Jocoro) and San Miguel (Comacarán, Uluazapa).
It seeks to develop actions that allow the production, storage and optimal use of water resources for agricultural production purposes. Design the rainwater collection system, a small reservoir, a well, and a drip irrigation system
The objective is to develop Works and Practices of Soil and Water Conservation that contribute to the infiltration of water and protection of the soil resource, in order to reduce the erosive effects
It seeks to contribute to the protection of sub-basins through the implementation of reforestation and agroforestry practices in support of a resilient agricultural activity

The National Civil Police of El Salvador has executed security projects through Video Surveillance, having a great impact on the prevention and investigation of crime in the metropolitan area of San Salvador. However, it is needed a Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) technology with vehicle license plate analysis and facial recognition for the improvement of safety in the Metropolitan Area. Therefore, in 2014, an agreement was signed between KOICA and the Ministry of Justice and Public Safety to start the Project for Automatic Vehicle Identification System for the Improvement of Safety in El Salvador, which is being executed by the National Civil Police (PNC); The duration of the project is three years (2014-2017) and has a budget of 3.6 million dollars.
Budget: 2.3 Million USD
The Korea International Cooperation Agency with the purpose of contributing to the prevention of violence in the Department of Ahuachapán, built the Youth Center “El Salvador – Korea” for young people to have access to educational and recreational spaces where they can participate in technical, vocational training programs, youth orientation and leadership; as well as sports activities.
The project was proposed in 2009 by the former National Public Security Council (CNSP) - now the National Youth Institute (INJUVE) - in coordination with the Municipal Government of Ahuachapán.
Budget: 3.55 Million USD
The Municipality of Soyapango, has a population of 272,835 (for year 2012)and in recent years there has been a population growth that has increased the demand for access to health services in that municipality.
KOICA with the purpose of benefiting the inhabitants of Soyapango decided to support the establishment of the Community Unit of Specialized Health Center, located in the Canton El Limón and thereby strengthen the capacity of the Ministry of Health (MINSAL) in the expansion of health coverage under the focus of the Primary Health Care.
The project results guarantee the universal health access to the people and communities of the Integral Basic Health System (SIBASI) East, which mostly includes the municipalities of Soyapango, San Martín, San Bartolomé Perulapía, Ilopango and Tonacatepeque, through the provision of services such as the following: general and specialized consultation, physiotherapy, clinical laboratory, odontology, ophthalmology, radiology and dermatology.
