AGUAPAN - Asociación de Guardianes de la Papa Nativa del Perú

¡Súmate a la conservación!

Why is AGUAPAN needed?


  • First of all, to create awareness and knowledge among custodian farmers themselves about their common challenges and ways to improve their living conditions while conserving biodiversity. Farmers are often not aware of international treaties and custodian farmers live in isolated mountain communities.


  • Second, to have a channel for government and the private sector to work on benefit sharing initiatives directly with an organization that actually represents the interests of custodian farmer's themselves. This way linkage between investors and benefactors can be horizontal and direct.
