Northern Morazan, in the center of the Salvadoran civil war, suffered population displacement, destruction of infrastructure and extensive breakdown of social structure. The conflict ended with peace accords on January 16, 1992. Subsequently the area was named the “Peace Route”. Unfortunately, nineteen years and millions of project dollars later, poverty indicators remain stationary at the highest level in El Salvador, giving little significance to the name.
