Perú es líder en la producción de cocaína, una industria ilegal que promueve el crimen y daña a las comunidades rurales. USAID apoya la Estrategia Nacional de Lucha contra las Drogas del Gobierno de Perú (GOP), ofrece alternativas al cultivo de coca y refuerza al GOP para enfrentar a las mafias de la droga. Este modelo ha sido muy exitoso y ha sacado a miles de familias rurales peruanas de la pobreza, alejándolas del cultivo de la coca.
