Tambopata and Tahuamanu are pioneers in promoting regenerative and sustainable livestock in Madre de Dios

From October 11th until the 22th, several workshops were held in Tambopata and Tahuamanu provinces, in Madre de Dios, as part of the implementation of the Project “Alliance for Regenerative Livestock in the Peruvian Amazon” (AGRAP). This created the opportunity to work hand in hand with the different sectors where livestock is developed.

These events took place in Loero, San Bernardo, Laberinto, Las Piedras, Shiringayoc, Iberia and Iñapari. They also brought together the producers located in the surrounding areas to present the implementation methodology of the farmers field schools (FFS) that will have a gender and youth approach, by promoting the empowerment of female farmers and knowledge transfer to new generations.

It should be noted that the farmers field schools (FFS) have three programs: Sustainable Farmers, Female Farmers and Future Farmers. Within the framework of the project, it seeks to involve public and private entities such as the Ministry of Agrarian Development and Irrigation (MIDAGRI), the Regional Agrarian Directorate of Madre de Dios, the National Institute of Agrarian Innovation, among others. In addition, to generate synergies with MIDAGRI, the Regional Government of Madre de Dios, and the Livestock Technical Board.

The Alliance for Regenerative Livestock in the Peruvian Amazon (AGRAP) is carried out thanks to the commitment of The Climate Group, Tropical Forest Alliance and WWF Peru, and is executed thanks to the financing of the UK PACT Program of the United Kingdom.
