Project Description

Small-holder producers in the semi-arid lowland region of Gran Chaco lack consistent income-generating opportunities. Fundación Gran Chaco (FGCH) provides technical assistance that enables indigenous and criollo producers to develop their entities as organizations, gain access to more markets and improve their crafts, processed foods and forest products. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Latin America and the Caribbean. FGCH’s activities promote smallholder agriculture and food production to ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.

Project Amendments

This amendment provides FGCH an additional twelve months and $109,800 to work with a network of more than 60 grassroots organizations across three provinces to pilot activities that strengthen community emergency management and decision-making capacity, improve food security, and increase access to reliable information and use of technology to respond to and recover from COVID-19. This will also promote resilience to existing and future emergencies for vulnerable Indigenous and Creole populations.
