Farming families in and around the Cerro Pelado, Veraguas have little access to equipment and resources they need to strengthen agriculture production and ensure healthy livelihoods. Asociación Para el Desarrollo Integral Comunitario (ADICO) strengthens community engagement through technical training and shared resources and encourages smallholder producers to use sustainable methods to cultivate and sell coffee, bananas, rice and vegetables. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Panama. ADICO’s activities promote smallholder agriculture and food production to enhance food security and ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
