Project Description

Residents of communities surrounding wetland areas on the north-central coast of Peru struggle to earn enough income to support their families. COOPERACCION – Acción Solidaria para el Desarrollo (COOPERACCION) provides technical assistance to artisans and harvesters to produce native grasses, diversify their crafts, increase their output and sales, and preserve the wetlands. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Peru. COOPERACCION’s activities strengthen communities through education and training and build peer-to-peer learning and action networks.
