El Perú encabeza 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 ilícito de coca y fortalece la capacidad del 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 ilícito de la coca.

Peru is a leading producer of cocaine, an illegal industry that fuels criminality and damages rural communities. USAID supports the Government of Peru’s National Strategy for Combating Drugs by providing alternatives to coca cultivation and strengthening Peruvian capacity to confront drug mafias. This enormously successful model has lifted thousands of rural Peruvian families out of poverty by shifting them away from coca cultivation. The narcotics trade in Peru feeds corruption and violence. It also perpetuates poverty in isolated areas of Peru’s Amazon.
