The National Commission for Development and Life without Drugs (DEVIDA) leads Peru’s battle against drug trafficking.  USAID partners with DEVIDA and other Government of Peru (GOP) institutions to decrease poverty, promote integrated sustainable development in rural communities, and sustain reductions of coca in the Peruvian Amazon.

USAID strengthens Peru’s capacity to implement the National Strategy for Combating Drugs through two principal, complementary mechanisms: (1) the second phase of a Government-to-Government (G2G) assistance agreement between USAID and DEVIDA, and (2) an institutional support contract to improve public investment and household incomes in target coca eradication areas, once dominated by the drug trade. Together, these two activities help the GOP incentivize families and communities to transition permanently away from coca farming and into a more secure, licit economy.
