Strengthening Local Development in the Highlands and High Rainforest Areas Project
The objective of this project is to increase the effectiveness, efficiency and relevance of public investments from central, regional and local governments in the target area. In this way, it aims to improve the well-being of the rural population and increase the value of their natural, physical, human, social and financial assets.
The project involves three main components:
- Valuing the assets of small-scale farmers by building their capacity for natural resource management and funding territorial management plans
- Providing small-scale producers with access to financial and non-financial services, including technical assistance, market linkages and leadership skills
- Strengthening capacity for local development through a territorial approach.
The project area includes the central and northern Sierra region and a small portion of the high rainforest region known as Alta Selva in the department of San Martín. The target population is composed mainly of subsistence smallholders and small-scale producers with limited physical, financial and human capital, and restricted access to markets.
