About the product

This publication recounts the experience accumulated by the United Nations Drug Control Programme (UNDCP) during alternative development (AD) activities, applied, since 1985, to illicit production of coca leaf in the Andean area; specifically Bolivia, Colombia, Peru. The volume is presented using a guide format in order to be more accessible and communicable. Alternative Development in the Andean Area is intended for local governments, their technical staff, cooperation agencies and organizations, who will find in the document a summarized and synthetic presentation of the practical content of AD and the philosophy, which guides UNDCP in the field.
