Despite a decade of impressive economic growth and democratic progress, many Peruvians have yet to see tangible benefits from these advances, fostering a sense of social, economic, and political exclusion. Peru must broaden economic opportunities and strengthen government capacity to provide social services to those of its citizens that currently feel excluded. Otherwise, illegal activity, environmental degradation, and social conflict might weaken its future economic growth and democratic consolidation. Working hand-in-hand with the Goverment of Peru, USAID seeks to strengthen Peru’s stability and democracy by supporting increased social and economic inclusion and reductions in illicit coca cultivation and the illegal exploitation of natural resources. To achieve this goal, USAID is implementing three development objectives: (1) Alternatives to illicit coca cultivation increased in targeted regions; (2) Management and quality of public services improved in the Amazon Basin; and (3) Natural resources sustainably managed in the Amazon Basin and glacier highlands.
