2021 – IPHAE

By |2021-02-21T14:23:50-05:0021 February 2021|

Project Description

The COVID-19 pandemic in Bolivia has prevented indigenous and campesino producers in Bolivia’s Amazon from harvesting, processing, and storing most of their fresh fruit, and reduced the market for their frozen products. This season’s losses have left producers food insecure and struggling to invest in economic recovery. With IAF support, Instituto para el Hombre, Agricultura y Ecologia (IPHAE) is providing materials, supplies, and technical assistance and training to six producer associations and Madre Tierra Amazonia, a producer-owned social enterprise, affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. IPHAE will promote the producers’ recovery and resilience by increasing the production of marketable Amazonian value-added fruit products for local, national, and international markets. IPHAE will also strengthen the organizational capacity of the Amazonian Fruit Producer Platform, which will promote public policies supporting sustainable agroforestry and increasing consumer access to healthy food.
