In El Salvador, the Representative Territorial Units (RTUs) selected were Bajo Lempa, Área Metropolitana de San Salvador (AMMSS) and Los Izalcos and Juayúa. Our research indicates that the four risk drivers have a detrimental effect on risk reduction within the three chosen RTUs. The most influential factors comprise environmental degradation, low incomes, lack of education and inappropriate land use.
