El Salvador: Population exposed to inundation hazard

The intention of this map is to give a quick overview for decision makers on national or sub-national level about the risk exposure of the population in inundation prone areas.

The classification used here runs from yellow (few people exposed) to red (many people exposed). The class width of the yellow-to-red division has been chosen to facilitate the visual representation of the variability of values obtained in the assessment. White colored Municipios don’t have surveyed settlement areas exposed to the flood prone zones ‘high’ or ‘very high’ or the inundation hazard is not relevant, either.
