Storage Overview

Public and private storage & warehouse facilities in El Salvador are quite acceptable with a range of options available nationwide. WFP used 3 warehouses from 2005 until 2014; which were owned and run by WFP’s Government Counterpart, the Food Assistance Directorate of the Secretariat for Social Inclusion (SIS/DAA). Currently WFP’s making use of one warehouse known as BFA Sitio del Niño. Warehouse staff is skilled with extensive knowledge on warehouse management, commodity handling, conservation techniques as well as WFP operating procedures.  Insecticides for fumigation, (phosphine) gases are stored on site and can be purchased locally without difficulty. The staff has been trained on the use of fumigants and insecticides, safety measures etc.  All warehouses used for the storage of WFP commodities are fixed structures, and not pre-fabricated (i.e. Wiikhall are currently used for WFP operations).

Therefore, WFP directly manages this BFA-Sitio del Niño warehouse, which is also on Government property (Banco de Fomento Agropecuario) and its management is shared between WFP and SIS/DAA.
