ENVIRONMENT AND DEVELOPMENT

AWARENESS AND INFORMATION

 

Thanks to a contribution from the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, PCN has been operating in Loayza Province to support the food security of the rural population of various communities, through the construction of water systems and training for farmers to manage them, as well as the provision of technical assistance to improve agricultural production and marketing.

 

On the Andean Plateau, in the municipalities of Patacamaya and Umala, it has been operating to support food safety through the construction of greenhouses and community wells to combat insufficient and poor nutrition, particularly among children of school age, with contributions from Cooperazione Decentrata Piemontese (the Piedmont Regional Authority and municipalities). More than 20 large greenhouses have been constructed from adobe and polycarbonate in as many primary schools, in order to produce vegetables that are not otherwise available to supplement the diets of the children, to inform and train mothers and fathers on the use of vegetables and to propose production models that can be replicated by the families.

Thanks to the Waldensian Church (Union of Methodist and Waldensian churches), a water system has been constructed for the community of Salviani (Ayo Ayo), to irrigate and reclaim areas of community land not previously capable of continuous production. The project will continue throughout 2015 to provide irrigation for all the community plots.

 

Recently, in collaboration with the municipalities and the CNAPE, Consejo Nacional Agropecuario de Producción Ecológica, which comes under the Ministerio de Desarrollo Rural y Tierras, possibilities are being explored of promoting the large-scale construction of family greenhouses, by providing the necessary technical assistance for both production and partial marketing, in a framework of sustainable and organic agriculture.
