USAID/Paraguay and its local partner, FECOPROD, recently launched the new offices for the Inclusive Value Chains project in the city of Curuguaty, Department of Canindeyu, in Paraguay's Northern Zone.  

This area of the country suffers from the highest levels of rural poverty.  USAID and FECOPROD will work with small producer associations and cooperatives to strengthen their institutions, increase productivity, improve product commercialization and access markets, for increased income of small producers in the Northern Zone, in the departments of San Pedro, Concepcion, Amambay and Canindeyu.  

The project has a special focus on women, youth and indigenous populations. The Inclusive Value Chains project will also work closely with local governments to increase their ability to plan for and invest in promoting local development, as well as with the private sector, to leverage funding and create long term and mutually beneficial alliances.

 

In April 2009, a four-person team conducted a democracy and governance assessment in Paraguay as a preliminary step in the development of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)/Paraguay’s new Democracy Sector Strategic Plan. The purpose of the assessment was to identify basic issues and challenges in Paraguay’s democratic development and to make strategic recommendations for USAID’s consideration.

Esta primera autoevaluación del componente “Promoción del Servicio Civil”, forma parte de la puesta en marcha del Plan de Monitoreo, Evaluación y Sistematización (PMES) del Programa de Democracia “Calidad en la Gestión Pública”. El objetivo del Programa es apoyar el fortalecimiento de la capacidad de gestión del gobierno para implementar políticas públicas y programas efectivos.

The Integrating Very Poor Producers into Value Chains Field Guide is intended to provide the field-level practitioner with tools and applications to reach very poor households. The intended outcome of the Field Guide is to have greater market engagement for very poor households through enterprise development activities.
El Gobierno Abierto es un concepto que en los últimos años ha cobrado gran importancia a nivel mundial. Con el mismo se busca establecer lazos más estrechos entre el gobierno y la ciudadanía a fin de lograr un diálogo dinámico, colaborativo  y efectivo, que promueva niveles deseados de transparencia, eficacia y participación en las políticas públicas; para lo cual las nuevas tecnologías de la información juegan un rol trascendental.
