Solidarity and Social Economy

The project seeks to strengthen the work of networks to promote the defense of the territory, promoting strategies for the rejection of extractivist policies, the protection, conservation and restoration of natural assets as environmental heritage, and advocacy in public policies of social and solidarity economy and the defense of human rights. It also seeks to develop alternative economic systems such as agroecological production and social and solidarity economy circuits that guarantee food security, participatory governance, empowerment and participation of women, reduction of exclusion and peace building in the territories.
