Agricultural projects by LAN in Peru

As part of the objectives set out by LNV, the LAN team has launched 4 projects in the agricultural sector with the intention of  materialising the vision for the Peruvian agriculture as well as the circular agriculture plan developed in 2021 for Peru by the LAN team. These projects aim to focus on the value chains of organic bananas, coffee and large-scale agro-export products such as mango, blueberry, table grape, avocado, among others. The project themes address different areas and themes prioritised, such as feeding the cities and circular agriculture, including various points of interest such as water management, inclusion of women and youth, access to finance for small-scale producers and agro-logistics.

The Peru Nexus Project: Water - Energy - Food (Food Component) – Lima Region
The Santa Eulalia river sub-basin comprises an area of approximately 1,067 square kilometers. The river originates at an altitude of nearly 4,800 meter and after 58 km joins the Rimac river at an altitude of 956 meter and from where it will make its way across the city of Lima from east to west. The Santa Eulalia river basin is home to approximate 29,000 people, most of whom are lacking basic needs in terms of access to water and energy, housing, education and income. The valley also provides 50% of the water needs and 70% of the electricity needs of metropolitan Lima. Moreover, the basin produces a wide variety of fruits mainly cherimoya and avocados for commercial purposes that are sold in Lima and vegetables for their own consumption.

The Water, Energy, Food (WEF) nexus is a relatively new approach that takes into account the interactions between the sectors of water, energy and food; aiming to minimise the trade-offs (developing one sector at the expense of another sector) and to maximise possible synergies between them. The Peru Nexus project will result in a more efficient use of water, energy and food resources, enhanced resilience to the impact of climate change, improved agricultural practices and the development of the local private sector in the Santa Eulalia river sub-basin. From an agricultural point of view the project aims at improving efficiency in water practices for irrigation with a focus on improving productivity. Technical training and access to markets will play a significant role in the development of this project.
