Peru

Lutheran World Relief has worked in Peru since 1979, collaborating with non-governmental institutions, producer organizations, municipal associations (mancomunidades) and businesses to advance rural development.

We focus on initiatives that increase small-scale farmers’ capacity to improve production and marketing, assist communities to enhance their natural resource management, and increase the effectiveness of public and private investments in rural development initiatives.

Lutheran World Relief works in an array of value chains to implement contextually-adapted interventions including sustainable climate-smart agriculture, income diversification, post-harvest processing, financial services, marketing, and increased organizational capacity.

Recognizing that extractive industries of natural resources are a permanent feature of the Peruvian economy, Lutheran World Relief encourages involvement of responsible mining stakeholders in local development projects. This encourages a legitimate dialogue between the mining companies and local Peruvian people.
