El Perú encabeza la producción de cocaína, una industria ilegal que promueve el crimen y daña a las comunidades rurales. USAID apoya la Estrategia Nacional de Lucha contra las Drogas del Gobierno de Perú (GOP), ofrece alternativas al cultivo ilícito de coca y fortalece la capacidad del GOP para enfrentar a las mafias de la droga. Este modelo ha sido muy exitoso y ha sacado a miles de familias rurales peruanas de la pobreza, alejándolas del cultivo ilícito de la coca.

Peru is a leading producer of cocaine, an illegal industry that fuels criminality and damages rural communities. USAID supports the Government of Peru’s National Strategy for Combating Drugs by providing alternatives to coca cultivation and strengthening Peruvian capacity to confront drug mafias. This enormously successful model has lifted thousands of rural Peruvian families out of poverty by shifting them away from coca cultivation.

Mitigate the adverse social and economic impacts of COVID-19 on vulnerable populations in Peru, particularly within indigenous communities in the Peruvian Amazon is critical. USAID and the Alliance support the Government of Peru to adequately respond to COVID- 19 crisis, particularly in under-resourced Amazon regions of Peru.

This activity seeks to reduce the impacts of the disease through an approach that integrates communication for behavior change / social change and the active participation of the organized community.

Likewise, orientation, counseling and emotional containment services will be provided to the most vulnerable populations, and economic recovery initiatives will be supported for families living in communities in priority geographic areas, taking into account their needs and idiosyncrasies.
