Other activities

Other activities we make are related to:
The climate change. environment. The grassroots learn about of the importance to build the resistant walls in vulnerable housing areas located up on the hills. The DRR is related to climate change effects. In the case of the untitled housing areas a main requirement is the construction of resistant walls to avoid disasters and to build a safe housing. According to the Peruvian rules the land titling is obtained only if the local government and the state agency of COFOPRI approve the construction of resistant walls to locate the water and sewage.
Our organization is focusing in make rural communities resilient. We already started with the Chocos Community located up on the high Andes of Peru. The Mayor launched his rural community (CHOCOS) as the first rural community resilient in Peru. Our objective if to train and follow up this process in other rural communities of Peru.
