Webinar | Doing Research in El Salvador



Today, governments and donors have little systematic information about the state of social science research, except for in a few developed countries. Yet, the implementation of the global agenda for sustainable development requires that the scientific community is equipped to critically analyze development and policy challenges, and to accompany actions and reforms with contextualized knowledge of the local environment. A new country report from El Salvador, published in March 2022, shows that the social science research sector is small, non-unified, but concentrated in a small geographic area with a diversity of actors. Institutional capacities make research production possible, but limitations remain in leadership, coordination, funding and access to information resulting in a dispersion of resources and competencies.
