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.

Sections 118 and 119 of the Foreign Assistance Act require that each USAID Country Development Strategy include an analysis of the actions necessary in that country to achieve conservation and sustainable management of biological diversity and tropical forests and of the extent to which the actions proposed for support by USAID meet these needs. This report provides USAID/Paraguay with this analysis.
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.
