Sustainability of the Banana Sector

ORGANISATION BACKGROUND AND LOCAL CONTEXT

The Portuguese NGO Oikos – Cooperação e Desenvolvimento (Cooperation and Development) aims at eradicating poverty and reducing economic asymmetries and the inequality of knowledge, by involving the social players and holding them jointly responsible, and by developing sustainable solutions so that everyone can exercise their right to live their lives in dignity.  Oikos in Peru has been supporting and promoting the production of organic banana, providing an increased income and greater stability for beneficiaries' families. Now, it proposes to improve the quality of life and reduce the poverty of producers, wor-kers and communities in Piura region through the sustainable develop-ment of the banana sector.

ACTIVITIES

This is a two weeks training and visit including a workshop of four hours. The workshop will be organized in PRC SCCI within the context of HfE project. Main activities include:

  • Briefing on both local context and project objectives;
  • Share knowledge and practices on organic banana production;
  • Share expertise to ensure an optimised use of the available local resources for an improved sustainable production;
  • Share ideas and practices for an optimised production and distribution,  in order it becomes fairer.
  • Concrete proposals made by the group of participants (negotiated between both parties).

THIS EXPERIENCE WILL ALLOW YOU TO:

  • Understand why it’s possible to have both a high quality and certi-fied organic production and a fair distribution, ensuring  producers reap the higher benefits of the pro-duce’s final value;
  • Attest that an investment in a determined sector needs to be integrated, responding  community needs.
