4 INEI, 2009 Smallholders, family farming Rural population: 24.1% ( 2007 Census ), 40% ( independent analysis ) Over 90% of farms Keepers of biodiversity and basis of Peruvian culture Over 70% of food consumed in Peru Essentially poor

5 Academic overall objective  Develop, increase, consolidate and internationalize UNALM’s academic capacity in research, education, knowledge transfer and innovation in sustainable management of agro- ecosystems to generate leadership in the Peruvian rural sector by maximizing the institutional impact

6 Developmental overall objective  Improving the food security, the local income, the stability and competitiveness of the agro-ecosystems and thus the overall livelihood situation of the local population through identification and remediation of key agronomic, socioeconomic and environmental constraints of small scale family based agriculture in Peru.

21 Thank you Cluster 1: sustainable management of agro- ecosystems Cluster 2: Education Cluster 3: Instit. Capacity building and infraestructure

22 IUC  KUL Internationalisation  OI-VLIR, IUC-Vlir, local projects (ColSciencias): projects in research, education, outreach and capacity building with developmental relevance –Colombia & Peru –4 OIs, 1 IUC, 15 ColSciencias projects since 1992: > 10 milj euro  Parallel networks for Lat Am? –‘Cooperation Consultation Meeting’, 8 universities from Mexico, Brazil, Argentina and Chile –BIW network –Vlir-network –Individual initiatives  Integration of these projects in KUL-policies and -vision  Increase visibility of these projects  Increase the impact of these projects within KUL  Create profile, role of KUL in development  Facilitation of our work in developing countries –Administrative support, ICOS –Recognition  involve ‘young’ staff members –ATP support (ICT)  Primary & Secondary school projects

23 Country strategy for Peru  Focus on ‘Sustainable management of agro-ecosystems to alleviate food insecurity in poor, rural area’s of Peru’ –Top-priority for the Peruvian government –Focus on well-defined and relevant objectives  Based on existing and functional networks –UNALM relations with local universities, NGO’s and Local Research Institutes –Partially elaborated in the running IUC and using excellent contacts of UNALM staff  Possible partners –Universidad Nacional del Centro in Huancayo – Universidad Alcides Carrion from Cerro de Pasco – Universidad Nacional Amazonia Peruana and Universidad Nacional de San Martin in the Amazon Basin – Universidad de Cajamarca –Universidad de Piura –Universidad de Ica –Universidad de Lambayeque – Universidad de Cusco  Regional Development Centers of UNALM in Costa, Sierra and Selva  Elaborated and form the seed of a possible Strategic Network for food insecurity and poverty alleviation
