We connect families and communities, enable productive collaborations, develop organizational and technical capacity, and empower them to create a thriving, ecologically-sound economy and enterprises.
APLI uses a comprehensive approach that blends community collaboration, capacity development and regenerative enterprise development in order to enable a shift towards resilient economies, thriving ecosystems, and flourishing cultures.
We envision resilient, vital, and thriving pastoral communities and Andean ecosystems. By leveraging the region’s rich biocultural knowledge and biodiversity, pastoral communities are able to restore ecologies and thrive economically.
We see potential and support these special places and people in realizing the full social, ecological, and economic potential of the place. APLI empowers communities to create locally-driven, culturally-appropriate and ecologically-sound economies and societies that live in harmony with nature.
Our work is based on Andean principles of Ayni, Mita and Minga, and is deeply rooted in participatory community-based processes and regenerative models of development that reveal the essence of place. These principles enable equitable communities that live in harmony with nature and create virtuous cycles of regenerative development.
