Multi-dimensional Review of El Salvador - Strategic priorities for robust, inclusive and sustainable development
The Multi-dimensional Review of El Salvador identifies four critical areas for policy action in El Salvador. First, enable productive transformation by improving infrastructure and providing public goods that are complementary to investment, e.g. better administration, and a more effective, modern, industrial policy. Second, invest in the education and training of its youth through sustained public expenditure, a better managed and better equipped teacher workforce, and content more relevant to students and the country’s needs. Third, improve the management of water resources, building on the recently adopted General Law on Water Resources, finding solutions locally, at the water basin level, and pricing water resources appropriately to enable investment in water supply and sanitation. Fourth, modernise the state through digitalisation and the institutionalisation of key governmental functions, including support to strategic decision making, human resource management and the open government agenda.
