COPOLAD. Programa de Cooperación entre América Latina, el Caribe y la Unión Europea en políticas sobre drogas
The study is conducted with the participation of Peru, Paraguay and Guatemala, with the aim of facilitating a general review of existing institutional capacities in the field of Alternative Development at the national level. It introduces an overview of the current institutional capacities of the landscape of organised actors that are currently implementing Alternative Development approaches in their countries. The purpose of the study is to identify key organisational and institutional lessons learned, drawing on the experience of Peru as a leading country with extensive experience in implementing Alternative Development. These lessons can provide guidance to Guatemala and Paraguay in strengthening their capacities to adopt this approach, still relatively novel in those countries.
