Peru: Inclusive creative industries: an innovative tool for alleviating poverty in Peru
This Joint Programme is working to alleviate poverty in four of Peru's most disadvantaged regions by developing inclusive creative industries in tourism, handicrafts, organic agriculture and gastronomy.
The programme's strategy is to create an inclusive environment for those normally excluded from economic activities, such as poor small-scale producers, women and indigenous communities. It involves harnessing the support of the public and private sectors to promote activities that increase added value by improving working conditions, revalorising cultural identity and contributing to the sustainability of inclusive businesses.
Productive organizational capacities and competencies are being strengthened so as to link them to value chains in advantageous conditions and to help improve access to the market.
