Nicaragua

Since CAFTA-DR went into effect there in 2006, U.S. exports to Nicaragua have grown more than 70 percent.

Nicaragua has one of the highest levels of food insecurity in the world. The country is a large food aid recipient due, in part, to its inability to offset the shortfall in domestic food production with commercial imports. USDA provides assistance via the Food for Progress and McGovern-Dole Food for Education programs.
