Systematisations of the development of beekeeping in Bolivia and of coffee cooperatives in Peru

Date: 2024 March 25

In March, two systematisations were carried out in Bolivia and Peru:  the first on the development of beekeeping and the work of the Association of Beekeepers of Macharetí (AAPIMMACH) in the Bolivian Chaco (Chuquisaca); the second on the coffee cooperatives of Satinaki and Pangoa, in the Central Jungle of Junín, in Peru.

These systematisations are part of the project “Strengthening capacities and alliances in local SSE ecosystems to contribute to eco-social transitions in Andean region territories”, financed by eLankidetza and involving not only the Hegoa Institute, but also other universities and cooperatives in Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. Alongside this research process, the project aims to strengthen the capacities of organisations, cooperatives and social movements in different territories in the Andean countries.

Xabier Gainza (in Bolivia, with Carlos Puig of Hegoa) and Asier Arcos (Peru), lecturers at the University of the Basque Country and Hegoa researchers, participated directly in these activities. In Bolivia, technical staff from the Institute for Rural Development in South America (IPDRS) and the Centre for Research and Promotion of the Peasantry (CIPCA), and in Peru, teachers and researchers from the group Seminar on Social, Solidarity and Popular Economy (SESSP) from the National University of San Marcos in Lima (UNMSM) also participated.

During the visits (from 8 to 17 March in Bolivia and from 16 to 24 March in Peru), work was carried out with local organisations and cooperatives, with Bolivian universities (UNIBOL Guaraní in Ivo, and Universidad Autónoma Gabriel René Moreno in Camiri), Peruvian universities (Universidad Nacional del Centro de Perú – UNCP – in Satipo and UNMSM) and with women and leaders organised in associations and cooperatives who had already attended previous systematisation workshops.
