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 has joined a new initiative under the U.S.-Caribbean 2020 framework to strengthen the region's capacities to thrive in the face of natural disasters.
Our grantee partner Fundación Hijos de la Sierra Flor is bringing women together to create spaces for dialogue, exchanges and recreation.
