According to a recent report by the Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET), run by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), low rainfall linked to the El Nino weather phenomenon has led to drought in parts of Central America, causing widespread damage to crops, shortages and rising prices of food, and worsening hunger among the region's poor.
