Endemic problems with the water supply are being compounded by the effect of El Niño, and short-term measures are being tried while the root of the problem is left unaddressed.
The editorial in Nacion.com is clear: "... The problem is a shortage of water. It's time to talk about a crisis, without any exaggeration." If meteorologists are not wrong in predicting the lack of rain, four major areas in the Greater Metropolitan area (GAM) "...
The conceptual advantage that is raising the country above its Central American neighbors is demonstrated by the implementation of the project for Line 3 of the Panama Metro between Albrook and Ciudad del Futuro.
The presentation of the environmental impact study for Line 3 of the Panama Metro, funded by the International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and prepared by URS HOLDINGS is a clear sign of the will of Panamanians to continue strengthening the foundations of economic and social development through the construction of communication routes, which is in keeping with what is clearly taught by the history of mankind: communication generates progress.
Naive or something else... ? The European Union will be paying for a local consultant to diagnose the economy of Central American countries, identify potential risks and determinants of development in the region, and propose actions in this regard, in a timeframe of only 55 days.

Rulers should be aware that a very large percentage of their people do not satisfy their hunger eating sovereignty but by eating rice and beans.
It seems that the current interest of the elected president of Costa Rica is to maintain the highest possible tension with Nicaragua.
Undoubtedly, any gesture of rapprochement with the government of President Ortega will entail political costs for Luis Guillermo Solís, the next president of Costa Rica.

Current policies against global warming are generating higher energy costs hurting the poorest in particular.
An article by Bjørn Lomborg, published in Nacion.com, notes that "Energy generation using solar and wind power received $6o billion in grants in 2012 alone. This means that the world spent $60 billion more on energy than was necessary. And as the climate benefit achieved amounted to a mere $1.4 billion, this means basically that $58.6 billion of the subsidies was wasted. In addition, a further $19 billion in subsidies was spent on biofuels which basically provide no climate benefit. All that money could have been used to improve health care, hire more teachers, make better roads or reduce taxes. "
