MetadataShow full item record
[Presentation]. From June 2007 to December 2009, three United Nations System agencies in Peru (PAHO/WHO, UNFPA and UNICEF) jointly executed the project titled “The only opportunity: human security for the development of Peruvian women and children” in two of the country’s regions with high levels of poverty and malnutrition: Apurímac and Ayacucho. In addition to putting the human security approach into practice through a set of actions aimed at building the capacities of children, adolescents and adults in order to promote and foster the exercise of their rights, the project was an excellent opportunity to develop new intervention models at the local level, with the participation of community representatives, health care workers, educators and authorities from the provinces of Andahuaylas and Chincheros in Apurímac, and Sucre and Vilcashuamán in Ayacucho [...] Due to all of the foregoing, we considered it necessary and appropriate to systemize and disseminate this joint work experience acquired in complex settings where there is a high level of vulnerability, in order to extract a set of lessons learned and recommendations to take into account in successive projects carried out in Peru and other countries in the Region.
