Crafting peace and building a safer world

Development of pedagogical and participatory research for the production of non-narcotic products from coca leaves in the department of Cauca – Colombia.

The project establishes a legal route to facilitate the transformation of the coca leaf into marketable products nationwide, considering the current Colombian legal framework and the opportunities it offers to coca-growing communities. This proposal can be replicated nationally in communities that have traditionally cultivated coca and that are willing to diversify their rural economy as a strategy that fosters resilience, food autonomy, and territorial sovereignty.
