Asociación para la Investigación y el Desarrollo Integral (AIDER, Association for Research and Integrated Development)

 

Asociación para la Investigación y el Desarrollo Integral (AIDER, Association for Research and Integrated Development) is a participatory initiative that provides capacity building and technology transfer to enable community-based conservation of forest resources across Peru. By providing technical assistance to forest-based communities in both the humid tropical forests of central eastern Peru and the tropical dry forest in the country's northern coastal region, the initiative has enhanced local capacity to improve livelihoods, protect the environment and mitigate desertification for more than a quarter of a century.

Much of this work has benefitted indigenous forest-dwelling communities, including the Shipibo-Conibo people of Ucayali. AIDER mobilizes a vast partnership model to bring technical expertise to these marginalized groups, helping them to assume autonomous control of productive forest resources.
