USAID's Investments for Peace and Security in Peru - Dollars to Results
FY 2011 $26.8 M
FY 2012 $26.4 M
To strengthen democracy and maintain trade-led economic growth, Peru must broaden economic opportunities and enhance government capacity to provide social services in environmentally sensitive and coca-vulnerable areas. To address this development challenge, USAID seeks to promote alterative livelihoods to reduce coca cultivation in targeted regions. USAID works with national, regional, and local governments in the promotion of licit crops, such as coffee and cacao, in support of the adoption of licit lifestyles to newly-eradicated communities, advancing economic and social development and helping Peru become one of the world's premier exporters of these products.
USAID's Peace and Security Program in Peru aims to:
- Reduce the cultivation and production of drugs and maintain that reduction; and
- Mitigate conflict and promote reconciliation.
