  • 1st Peer-to-peer workshop: Alternative development and value chains (9th & 10th May 2017, Quito - Ecuador)

    Drugs Supply Reduction

    The 1st COPOLAD peer to peer Workshop on  Alternative Development and value chains was held in Quito, (Ecuador) on 9th and 10th May 2017 and counted with the participation of delegates from Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Paraguay and Peru. 

    It used a South-South cooperation model between countries with a broad experience in the field of Alternative Development -AD- (Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru) and other countries in the region interested in the topic (Guatemala, Paraguay and Mexico). It allowed putting in common the basic concepts of the value chains, in addition to sharing experiences in this area to facilitate the exchange of good practices and mutual learning on value chains for projects originated from AD projects. Concrete experiences were presented and a space for reflexion among all participating countries was offered, with the participation of technicians working on AD in each country, representatives of the regional or local government, as well as representatives of associations of producers involved in AD projects. 

    This was the first Workshop of a series of three Workshops foreseen in COPOLAD and based on the concept of peer-to-peer learning on alternative development and value chains.  The organisation of these workshops responds to the need of developing a sequential work of support for the participating countries.
