Improving Nutrition and Food Security for the Peruvian Child: a Capacity Building Approach
Indigenous children of Peru's High Andes and Amazon regions are among the most malnourished in the world: up to half of them suffer from chronic malnutrition and many are anemic and Vitamin A deficient. This Joint Programme supported the Peruvian government's effort to improve food security and nutrition in four of the country's poorest regions by accelerating implementation of the National Strategy “CRECER.” 
Integrated and adaptive management of environmental resources and climatic risks in High Andean micro-watersheds
This Joint Programme's aim was to develop and reinforce the abilities of Peru's local and regional governments, communal authorities and the general population to improve management of environmental resources and the provision of services in High Andean rural areas. It took a participatory, informed and decentralized perspective that incorporated environmental and climate change issues into public policy decisions at the local and regional government levels.
Inclusive creative industries: an innovative tool for alleviating poverty in Peru

Peru: Promotion of employment and MSEs for Youth and Management of Juvenile Labor Migration
Despite achieving the highest average growth rate in Latin America over the last decade, Peru still struggles with inequalities, particularly among youth. While those with qualifications and skills have benefitted from the economic activity, many young people are jobless, and just over half say they would leave the country if given the opportunity. This Joint Programme sought to promote employment and microenterprise for Peruvian youth, and to manage their migration, by creating more and better opportunities for them to secure decent work.
