We here at the IAF would like to take a moment to congratulate a grantee partner named among the top 500 best development projects in Latin America!
The IAF-sponsored Cooperativa de Producción y Servicios Especiales de los Productores de Camélidos Andinos (COOPECAN) qualified in two categories of the Premios Latinoamérica Verde 2017, or Green Latin Americas Prizes.
The Latin American Green Awards is an annual contest that recognizes the efforts of businesses and civil society organizations to advance sustainable development initiatives in categories like water and other natural resources preservation, social inclusion, energy and others. This year more than 2,500 projects from Latin America and the Caribbean participated. COOPECAN was ranked 25th for “human development” and 118th for “responsible production and consumption”ption”
Talk about community-led development!
The IAF, Fairtrade International, and the Latin American and Caribbean Network of Fair Trade Small Producers and Workers (CLAC) are partnering to boost income and food security for small-scale farmers in Latin America and the Caribbean.
