Changes in precipitation patterns caused by climate change in the Peruvian Andes jeopardize downstream water provision and cause landslides and erosion. The project aimed at recovering the vegetative cover of the upper parts of mountain ecosystems through the promotion of agroforestry and reforestation practices, which constitute comprehensive climate change adaptation strategies to restore soil humidity, improve water infiltration in the soil and reduce erosion and the likelihoods of runoffs.

The guinea pig (known as cuy) is an ancient source of food for Andean cultures. It is rich in proteins as well as other valuable nutrients critical to healthy and balanced diets. Thus, the guinea pig is considered a strategic practice to adapt to the impacts of climate change by diversifying risks and contributing to the diet and to the family economy, while contributing to soil fertility. The joint program promoted this activity by building capacities of local communities in breeding, reproduction and sale of the guinea pig.
