Communities living near and within protected areas face unique environmental and economic challenges to support their livelihoods. Protección del Medio Ambiente Tarija (PROMETA) provides technical assistance to camelid herders to improve the sustainable production and marketing of their livestock and to develop skills in natural resource management and forage crop production. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Bolivia. PROMETA’s activities promote smallholder agriculture and food production to enhance food security and ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
