Sustainable Development Leadership Training



The project will annually provide practical on-the-ground training in sustainable development to 100+ grassroots practitioners and Latin American professionals via courses, internships, and exchanges.

Rural and indigenous communities need to strengthen and diversify their productive activities in a sustainable and environmentally responsible manner. ANAI has 25 years of experience helping communities put such activities into practice. Through practical training, this will be shared with representatives from other regions, enabling them to promote similar initiatives in their own communities throughout Latin America and creating a mutual support network of grassroots practitioners.

Potential Long Term Impact
