Policy brief: synergies between institutions and producer organizations
How can the synergies between local government institutions and producer organizations be strengthened within the framework of an natural resource management and disaster risk management agenda in the context of climate change?
This policy brief discusses the conditions for achieving synergy between local government institutions and producer organizations in the governance of the natural resource base in the tropical Andes. It introduces the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA); then presents best practices pursued by the agroecological producers of the Ayapata district in Puno (Perú), the alpaca producers of the Churia community in the Ayacucho department (Perú), and the sustainable management of lizards in the Beni depart-ment (Bolivia), which demonstrates the importance of the support provided by the municipal governments to these farmers' organizations.
This document is part of a series of policy briefs on the management of natural resources and institutional strengthening for disaster risk reduction in the context of climate change.
