Challenges in Nicaragua
- The percentage of schoolchildren who started primary school but then dropped out before reaching the end of primary school is 51.6%.
- The Nicaraguan drylands are among the regions that are most threatened by climate change worldwide. Droughts and other natural catastrophes threaten the food security of the small farmers who live there.
- The political crisis has massively affected the economy, leading to negative growth since mid-2018; at the beginning of 2019, the figure was -7.7%.
